About

Hi. I've been absent for a while from fundraising and my challenges but I'm back and turning 40 this year. I wanted to mark this milestone by setting a new challenge and supporting a new fundraising project at the same time.

The project I'm supporting is a local community initiative #goodshepherdcommunitybusproject. I live in your typical housing estate that lacks community amenities and provision especially for the youth but also for young families and the elderly for whom loneliness and lack of support is a big deal. 

The #goodshepherdcommunitybusproject is an initiative led by my Church to provide for our community on the Sandhills estate in Leighton Buzzard. The project is in its infancy as we scope out the exact nature of the provision needed. Core to our vision is a dedicated youth community support officer to serve the estate. Another central theme of the project is the potential provision of a community bus to serve the estate and act as a focal point. At this stage we can not commit to a single guaranteed solution but I can guarantee that your donation will make a huge difference in our community, to our residents, both young and old. 

Event details

3 sub 3 marathons ~ Brighton, Warsaw, Snowdonia!!

You can find out the latest on how my 3 in 3 Marathon Challenge is going including a read of my BRIGHTON MARATHON RACE REPORT at www.ultradiscostu.co.uk

The '3 in 3HR Marathon Challenge' is to run 3 marathons each in 3 hours or under :-P  I completed Brighton Marathon on 15 April in 3:00.05! Warsaw Marathon is in September with the finale in Snowdonia, Wales in October. Each marathon presents its own challenges. My training miles have averaged 30 per week (which is very low!) after a break from running. So its fair to say that I'm some way off being in prime marathon fitness but I believe that anything is possible in life if you work for it.

Snowdonia is definitely not a fast course and little hilly! To run a sub 3 hour marathon in Snowdonia would be 50 minutes quicker than my time in 2017 and put me in the Top 1% finishers. So rest assured this Challenge is no walk [or run] in the park. I've got some serious work ahead of me!

God Bless
Stu
