FROM KEVIN MAYO, CLIFTON
As some of the local community may already know, on 2 June I will be taking part in Britain’s longest non-stop running race – starting at the Gas Works in Birmingham and running the whole length of the Grand Union Canal to London, a total of 145 miles. The event will take between 30 and 40 hours and is deep into new territory for me as I have never run over 90 miles non-stop before. To add to the pain, the event is being held on my wedding anniversary. I shall be raising money for Cancer Research UK and my charity page is on http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/
– from there just search for my name.
