75 Marathons in 75 Days at 75 Years Old.

Ray Matthews on Saturday July 2, 2016 starts his 75 Marathons in 75 Days Challenge. Did I mention he is 75 years old? This phenomenal Ultra Runner only started running at 60 years old and he strives for a challenge that will take him to the edge. This World Record Challenge is to raise £75,000 for a soft playground for Newman School in Rotherham where some of the students have physical limitations. www.donateplayground.uk Find out more at www.rwrr.co.uk

I’m supporting Ray on this challenge because I think what he’s doing is not only a stand against ageism but incredibly inspiring plus the fact I’ve met him and he’s a really decent bloke!

Please consider sponsoring one of his Marathons for £100 if you are a business or donating a few quid if you are inspired by his efforts. Thank you xxxx


PS: Once again I’ve been maxxed out with work, commuting and training at the gym during the week and park runs and long distance walking at weekend (plus any volunteer work I do) so do apologize for lack of recipes BUT I’m taking it down a notch today to find sometime to re-create some new wartime recipes and update my blog so please check back over the weekend.

PPS: I would really appreciate it if you could share this post on your Facebook wall or by e-mail, Twitter or any of the social media buttons I have listed below. Getting the word out about Rays challenge and fundraising efforts would be amazing.

Found this ‘PlayBuzz’ this morning that someone had made out of my blog… it’s kind of cool!
