COLIN'S BIGGEST CHALLENGE – JOGLE &
Colin Bell, a member of Bodmin Rotary Club,
a very active volunteer with ShelterBox and a passionate runner has embarked on a
During 2015 Colin set a challenge to run
2015km, about 48 marathons distance and if that wasn’t ambitious enough, he
completed some of it carrying a large green ‘ShelterBox’ strapped to his back,
all to raise money for the Cornish charity, ShelterBox.
Colin's latest personal challenge is to run from John
O’Groats to Land's End again with a ShelterBox strapped to his back. But
this is not challenging enough, so he intends to complete the ‘Three Peaks’ along the way,
visiting the mountains of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake
District and Mt. Snowdon in Wales – all adding to the total distance to be covered.
As a combined venture this has never been
done by anyone before and amounts to approx. one marathon each day, a distance
of over 1000 miles, a total of almost 40 marathons.
< All this to raise money for shelterBox >
The challenge will take place starting at
John O’Groats on June 10th 2018 and finish at Land's End hopefully on
July 23rd 2018.
Colin is getting support from friends along
the route and being monitored by Shelterbox.
Also hoping to get sponsorship and donations from other Rotary Clubs and
friends as he progresses towards Lands End.
Please sponsor Colin on this
brave challenge, all to raise funds for ShelterBox.
