Mike Wood says thank you

2 Jul, 2012

Mike Wood"I would like to take this opportunity to thank firstly my amazing support team – Joss & Chris Midgely, Nick Lewis and Marek Wajaszek – for helping me to get through 3 tough days and for looking after me so well and for making my attempt at Offa’s Dyke possible.

Thanks also to all the Almost Athlete members who kindly sponsored and supported me over my Prestatyn to Chepstow Offa’s Dyke path 177 miles in 3 days.

I completed the run at 9.00pm on Sunday 1st July while being cheered to the finish by a fantastic team of AA supporters.

The run took 64hours from start to finish and the running time was 47 hours and 25 mins. The Offa’s Dyke national trails officer emailed to say that this is the fastest time it has ever been completed and is therefore a record and the time to beat, which is nice!

But my reason for taking on this run was to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Cancer Research UK and I am very pleased to say that the total raised stands at £3,100, which is fantastic and worth all the blood, sweat and tears during the run.

Thank you once again to one and all, proving yet again that Almost Athletes is not just the most friendly, but the most supportive and generous running club in Cheltenham."
