1k and 5k events (walk, jog or run) for Cancer Research UK. Open to men, women and children in the heart of the historic market town of Louth, Lincolnshire.

My son, Jacob, received a Bone Marrow transplant a few years ago and I have signed up to Race for Life to try and give a little something back.

The race that I have signed up for is going be in Louth on Sunday 26th September. Unfortunately, this is the day that I am flying back from Qatar!

I have been looking forward to this race for some time and, rather than miss out, have been given permission to run the race remotely.

So, rather than a cool and gentle jog through Louth, I will be running the race in the 40 degree heat of Doha!

Although I am sure that you would have been generous with your donation anyway, please be extra generous to compensate for the hell I am going to be going through...

Thanks in advance
