EVENT DATE: Nov 14, 2013
LAND’S END ENGLAND TO JOHN O’GROATS SCOTLAND | 1400 KMs OVER 12 DAYS, MANY MILES FOR MARY CHARITY RUN FOR KUWAIT CHILD’S RIGHTS SOCIETY.
On November 14th 2013, James Milne and his team of three runners from Inspire Pure Fitness Kuwait intend to run the length of the United Kingdom to raise awareness and funds for Kuwait Child’s Rights Society. This charity run will set out from Land's End England to John O'Groats in the Highlands of Scotland covering a total of 874 miles or 1,407 km over a period of 12 days.
It will be conducted in a team relay form of 30 KM at a time totaling around 120 KM each day. To prepare himself and his team for the run, James will be mainly utilizing Crossfit Endurance Training Methods and no more than 20 KMs in total will be run each week in prep for the Ultra Marathon. However the run itself still is an immense undertaking and would require a large amount of support and encouragement for all runners taking part in it as well as the obvious financial needed funds to achieve and succeed in this incredible journey.
The challenge is in aid of Many Miles for Mary, a charity established by the New Zealander in 2009. This year will be the fifth feat of endurance completed by Milne. James launched Many Miles for Mary in memory of his beloved grandmother Mary who passed away in 1999 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s and James promised he would honor her memory in a way that would pay tribute to the pivotal role she played in his life. Since then, Many Miles for Mary has raised almost US$30,000 and travelled more than 3000 kilometers for Alzheimer’s research, Childs Cancer Foundation NZ and Ronald McDonald House Auckland.
