Location: John O'Groats to Land's End

Date: Commences 12th September

At MSRC, we are constantly amazed and impressed at the lengths some people will go to raise funds and raise MS Awareness but even we are speechless at this one…….

On Saturday 12th September, Simon Barnes from Stroud will be taking on his toughest challenge yet.

Running from John O'Groats to Land's End!

You can view Simon's route plan here -

Yes, that's right; he is going to RUN from one end of the UK to the other, covering a staggering 871 miles in 16 days!

That's an average of nearly 55 miles a day!

Simon is busy making last minute preparations to his challenge, not least of all preparing himself mentally for what lies ahead and we are hoping that lots of you will show your support.

How you can help:

• If you live in the area or close to Simon's route, could you get a group together to give Simon a much needed cheer and encouragement as he runs through your town?

• Are you or do you know a physiotherapist who can offer a much needed massage at the end of his daily run?

• Could you send Simon a message of support via MSRC that we can forward to him each evening?

Please email abi or call 01206 505444 if you can offer any help with the above.
