Running to London [Video]

On Friday 22nd July 2022 I set out on a 310km run from Swansea High Street Station in Swansea, south Wales to Paddington Station in London, arriving four days later on Monday 25th July 2022.As an avid (but amateur) distance runner I have always been keen to test myself with a challenge that really tested me to limits and this was it.In March 2022, my Mother-in-Law Patricia Quirk was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma, a form of cancer that is incredibly hard, if not impossible to treat. Sadly, she passed away peacefully a day after finding out her diagnosis having presumably suffered with the illness for a number of months.I decided then that I wanted to do something to raise money and awareness for Tenovus Cancer Care, a cancer charity based in Wales that have been helping individuals affected by cancer and their families and friends. It made sense to undertake this challenge to do this, Pat herself had spent 30+ years working for the DVLA and as part of her role she would regularly take the train from Swansea to Paddington, so it made sense to follow the route that Pat herself took hundreds of times over the years.I set about upping my training, going from running around 50km a week to about 110km a week. I started doing 50km runs every Saturday to increase my stamina and I created a JustGiving page to help Tenovus out.I initially set a £1000 target, which was broke in a week or so. We raised the target to £2000, which again was broken quickly. We raised the target again to £3000, which was broken a few days before the challenge started. During the run, due to the amount of donations coming in I decided to raise the target once more to £4000 and we managed to beat that target a week after the run’s completion.This video documents my training process, clips from the four days spent running from Swansea to London, some photographs that I took along the way and some comments from myself about the run.I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it. Please sit back, relax and enjoy.The donation link will be open until late September, so if you would still like to donate you can do so by visiting www.justgiving.com/runningtolondon

Medan, Indonesia – There was nothing wrong with Pika Sasi Kirana when she was born.Pika was a bouncing baby who weighed 3.4kg (7.5lb).
