Hello and Welcome from 5 marathons in 5 days
Thanks for visiting this page folks. I'm hoping to raise some money to support the International Scott Centenary Expedition 2012 - have a look at ISCE page on this site, or go to www.isce2012.co.uk to find out more about a very worthwhile cause.
Starting at Land's End on Tuesday the 23rd of August and finishing in Scott's home city of Plymouth on Saturday the 27th of August I'll be running a marathon a day along the South West Coast Path. The rough breakdown of the stages (skipping the Helford as there are far too many rivers to cross):
Day one: Sennon Cove to Prussia Cove
Day two: Prussia Cove to Coverack
Day three: St Mawes to Mevagissey
Day four: Mevagissey to Polperro
Day five: Polperro to Plymouth (Smeaton's Tower)
I've never run more than a half marathon before, so it's probably going to involve a lot of blood, sweat and tears - and definately a lot of cursing myself for ever having started such a stupid thing. So if the thought of seeing me reduced to a mere broken husk of a man pleases you, and if you fancy donating a bit of money to a very worthwhile cause, please sign up below. You can also follow me at my blog - http://5marathons5days.wordpress.com/ - and see just how badly I'm doing...
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent you will boost your donation.
Thank you for your support.
The International Scott Centenary Expedition is a dynamic project celebrating the centenary of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) aboard Terra Nova and the death of Captain Scott and the Pole Party in March 1912. We are undertaking an expedition to Antarctica in 2012, involving people from multiple backgrounds and ages, to visit the last tent site of Scott and his Polar Party, and in doing so to provide a clear focus for the education programme and media outreach campaign, and thereby to inspire and educate the community at large and the leaders of tomorrow.
The expedition salutes the memory of Scott and his Pole Party and celebrates their achievements, providing a powerful focus to our education and outreach programme. A century on, Scott's legacy is to be found in the modern framework of the Antarctic Treaty itself, which designates Antarctica as an international continent for science. With its educational and scientific emphases, this expedition will be supporting this ethos. We will also be supporting the work of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, which continues the legacy of Scott's expeditions in the Polar regions to this day, ensuring a century of polar scientific work inspired by Captain Scott. Our education and outreach work, with children and engaging the community through 'Scott' themed events and workshops is already under way. You can find out more about all aspects of the expedition at our website.
