My Message

On the 8th-9th June 2019, I am running The Cateran Yomp, a 54-mile event  run in 24 hours across rural Perthshire.  For me this a huge challenge as the furthest I've ever run previously is 32 miles so this is a giant step up into unknown territory.  I will be running with Chris Moon, a friend who is not only a veteran but also a double amputee having been seriously injured while clearing land mines in Mozambique in 1995.  Since then Chris has run many Ultra Marathons and has shown just how much can be achieved if you just keep on keeping on and are willing to take one more step.

It’s going to be tough but it will raise vital funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Army's National Charity, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families.

I don't often seek sponsorship but, on this occasion I think there is a significant chance that I will struggle to complete the event so the extra motivation would be a huge help.

Please give generously, and thank you for your support!

I have no doubt you'll soldier on regardless, John, Chris will not let you get away with much, judging by his laudable approach towards life, as illustrated in his most humbling book: 'One Step Beyond'. Have a good ride, both of you xx
