In June this year we sponsored James Thurlow to run across the UK in order to raise money for JDRF (a diabetes charity). It is 190 miles and 8700m ascent. A challenge for anybody, but when you consider that James is a type 1 diabetic, you realise the enormity of the challenge he faced.


From the outset James wanted to reach the finish line within four days. We are delighted that James made it (just) under his target time. You can read more about his adventure, as well as see pictures, on his How Fast? website.  Alternatively you can watch a short film about James’ challenge (scroll down to view).
