The first leg of Run Walk Ride for Rwanda is the BTR Liverpool Tour of Merseyside - itself a multi-stage event of six races in seven days Sun 5th July: Southport half marathon - 13.1 miles Mon 6th July: Thurstaston beach race - 6.1 miles Tue 7th July: Sustrans 10 mile race - 10 miles Wed 8th July: A well-earned rest Thur 9th July: Halton 5 mile race - actually 5.1 miles Fri 10th July: Huyton cross-country - 6 miles Sat 11th July: Wirral coastal run - 12 miles A total of 52.3 miles, just about a double-marathon distance. The event(s) went as well as could be expected, with some good results and some not-so-good. I wasn't looking forward to the half marathon and struggled between 5 and 10 miles, but recovered to finish in 114th position. Monday was hard, especially on the beach, and I finished 118th. I felt better on Tuesday and finished strongly to take 106th. Wednesday was a welcome break, and Thursday's 5-miler was fast and furious finishing in 104th.

After cycling in the Scottish highlands, back to running. Or more accurately, running, walking and riding. Over summer I will be completing 182 miles - the distance of seven marathons - in a series of events: Run the BTR Liverpool Tour of Merseyside: six races in seven days, totalling 52 miles - a double marathon Walk the Liverpool Loop and Cheshire Lines paths from Hunts Cross to Formby - a marathon walk Ride to Southport and on to the Forest of Bowland and back via Preston - a quadruple marathon The events will take place during July, August and September, and I will be hoping from support along the way. More importantly I will be looking for sponsorship to help fund the rebuilding of Shyira Maternity Hospital. It needn't be much - I'm not expecting a pound per mile or anything like that, although £182 would be very welcome. Even a penny per mile would be welcome! So if you want to make a difference to the lives of women and their babies in Rwanda, please spons
