Adam Leakey and Jon Hewlett, serving police officers in Swindon, will be undertaking a challenge to run 3 marathons in 3 days to raise funds for Children in Need 2012 – the charity chosen as they both have young families.
They will be running 3 marathons in 3 days on Wednesday 14, Thursday 15 and Friday 16 November 2012 to coincide with the live televised appeal on that Friday.
The route will take them from Marlborough to Reading, Reading to Hounslow and then a route around London on the final day
Their aim is to raise £10,000 for this great cause, but the dream would be to raise much more and they are looking for sponsorship from individuals or businesses who may be able to help them reach or exceed their target.
Neither of them are natural runners and the training has taken over the last 6 months of their lives with plenty more miles left in the training programme leading up to the event itself. They have the blisters and niggling injuries to prove it!
