CHARITY PARTNER

Wings For Life

We are thrilled to be able to support Wings for Life this year as our event charity partner. Every eight hours someone in the UK sustains a spinal cord injury and most become wheelchair users as a result. Spinal cord injury affects people of all ages and backgrounds and is most commonly caused through road traffic accidents, falls, illness or sports. Spinal cord injury happens in a moment, but the impact lasts a lifetime. After an injury most people live through months if not years of rehabilitative therapy. There is currently no medical treatment available to repair the injured spinal cord.

Wings for Life fund world class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at finding a cure for spinal cord injury. Their research focuses on how to minimise damage, stimulate repair and restore function after an injury to the spinal cord has been sustained. Scientists agree: injured neurons can regenerate. Wings for Life therefore believe that spinal cord injury will be curable one day.

SOS Rehydrate

The SOS formula allows you to absorb 3x more water than water on its own. Osmolarity is the balance between sodium and water in the body, the lower it is, the better it is for rehydrating you.
Sports drinks are ineffective at combatting dehydration as they do NOT contain the correct quantity and balance of electrolytes and glucose. SOS contains a doctor formulated measure of both, for optimal hydration.

Bonk - supplier of event t-shirt

From humble beginnings selling a small range of t-shirts at South East England triathlon events, Bonk has gone on to deliver successful lifestyle clothing collections, the first ever company to design casual wear dedicated to the fast-growing world of triathletes, and more latterly, quality technical training wear.

Bonk was borne out of an addiction to the swim, bike, run lifestyle and though its roots lie firmly in Triathlon, the brand is evolving and aspires to unify people with a passion for fitness and endurance sports. Training and pushing physical boundaries is the very heartbeat of the brand, echoed in Bonk’s ‘Live to Train’ mantra. Bonk is committed to the athletic lifestyle but also prefers not to take itself too seriously; a sense of fun underpins the entire brand ethos. This is reflected both in the playfulness of the brand name.

Runderwear

Runderwear is a range of Performance Seamless Sports Underwear for men and women..
They design and construct chafe-free, moisture wicking technical underwear for all sports. “We think that running underwear is a seriously important part of the kit bag that runners haven’t had the opportunity to have. We constantly innovate to become the best sports underwear brand in the world.”

Running Adventures

When coaching and leading, I believe in a friendly, personable approach. I went from someone who hates running to completing some of the biggest races in the world in just a few years, it was a hobby that got out of hand! I remember what it is like to be scared of 5k or 10k as clearly as I remember the feeling of standing on the start line in some of the world’s toughest events. It doesn’t matter what distance you do, if you run, you are a runner, we’re all the same.
