Running 50 @ 50 in support of Release International

As Release International and Simon Harris both celebrate their 50th birthdays, please support Simon with his personal challenge to run 5 x 10km timed runs during 2018 or 50 @ 50!

Simon writes, ‘As I celebrate my 50th year I’ve decided to challenge myself once again! My goal this time around is to run 50 kilometres over 5 x 10km timed runs so basically one 10km run for each decade.

I’m doing this to support the work of Release International, a charity also celebrating their 50th year. They are a Christian ministry that helps each of us engage with those facing persecution across the world for their Christian faith. They do this through raising awareness of their situation, encouraging prayer and by responding to their practical needs.’

The five 10 kilometre events Simon has chosen to run at are:

1. Civil Service Capital Challenge at the Olympic Park (which I completed on the 16th May).
2. The London Vitality 10k – 28th May.
3. The Richmond Summer Riverside 10k – 21st July.
4. RAF 100 year Spitfire 10k at Colindale – 2nd September.
5. Bournemouth Supersonic 10k – 6th October.

As you can see he is well into his challenge but there are still kilometers to go which need your support…
