OUR MATT GRIFFITHS

"On the 27th May I will be tackling one of my biggest challenges to date –

The Grand Union Canal Race.

This event is a non-stop, 145 mile foot race that follows the Grand Union Canal from Birmingham to London."

The Grand Union Canal Race is almost upon me!
On Saturday 27th May I'll be setting off from Birmingham at 6am, along with about 100 other runners.
We will run 145 miles to London's little Venice!
It will be a tough (and probably hot!) race and historically only about 50 to 60% of the runners make it to the finish!
We have until 3am Monday 29th to finish.
I'll be switching on a personal GPS tracker just before the start.

And finally, if you click on this link you can read about the charity I'm running for and any donations would be much appreciated and will greatly help others:

I will try and give some progress updates on this post but at this time I can't really predict what time I will finish.
Thanks to you all for your support so far.
