Barry's International Running Challenge

- 18th Nov 2010

Chris my wife was diagnosed with kidney cancer earlier this year and had a kidney removed. Two months ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment at Christies. (Chris is a Life President of the Harriers and help set up the women's section).

As a focus, Alex (our son) and myself decided to enter the International Running Challenge in Lanzarote which consists of 4 days running:

10km Trail Run
13km Volcano Run
5km Beach run
The Lanzarote Half Marathon

I know, 'we must be mad', but you know that anyway.

We have raised over £2,000 so far for The Christie Hospital and St Annes Hospice and people can donate at or

Please follow us on our facebook page Father & Son - A Charity Run where we will put a daily report of our adventure.

Sorry to leave this late, but we would be really grateful for your support.
