Well there is no stopping our marathon man Jim!

Jim is due to compete in the Marathon des Sables later this year to raise funds for Sheffield Mind. In order to prepare for the gruelling 250 km course - did we mention it takes place in the desert - he has set himself a very punishing Easter schedule. 

Whilst most of us will be over indulging in chocolate treats and hot cross buns, starting on Easter Sunday, Jim will be running marathons on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, doing a double marathon on Wednesday, having a well earned rest on Thursday , running a marathon on Friday and finishing with a 10k Saturday.

Even typing that tired us out!

Friends will be running alongside and providing much needed support and Jim will also be running a raffle, selecting numbers at each of his stop offs on the Wednesday.

He has had fabulous support from friends, family and local business and has already sold £250 worth of tickets!

We are not sure where all the energy comes from BUT we are grateful for the HUGE amount of time and effort he has spent arranging the runs and the raffle and wish him the very best!
