Running 2 Rwanda - and we're off!

After months of planning (well, a couple of days, at least), our small group of runners took the first steps on the long road to Rwanda.

Starting on 1st April, we intend to cover the equivalent of running the distance from Formby in the North-West, to Shyira in North-West Rwanda - a total of 4245 miles, as the crow flies.

Along the route, we'll cross the English coast at Eastbourne, crossing into France near Dieppe, passing Paris en-route to Monaco and Corsica. Then, after crossing the Mediterranean, we'll traverse Libya, Chad, Sudan, Central Africa Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo, before entering Rwanda for the last few miles to Shyira.

Hopefully, we'll pick up a few more runners along the way - the more the merrier, and the quicker we'll reach our goal. If you'd like to join us, just sign up, and I'll get all the relevant details to you.
If you like what we're doing, but don't fancy doing the running, just click here to support us.

Whichever you choose, you'll be helping to train a Midwife in Rwanda, and other Safe Motherhood projects.
