Last weekend, Liverpool Food Tours MD, Gareth Boyd covered almost 92 miles by foot over a 24 hour period. He was running/walking for 2 local charities – The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity & The Bluecoat.
Gareth Boyd said:
‘I’m delighted to be able to support these 2 worthwhile charities. I love running and this 24 hour challenge seemed the perfect way to try and raise support. Thank you to everyone who has supported me to date”.
To date he has raised almost £1000.
Gareth started the 24 hour challenge at 9am Saturday 3rd July and only stopping for quick food/toilet breaks he had reached 50 miles by late afternoon. Frustratingly the running turned to walking during the evening and heading into the early hours of Sunday morning he was moving at a slow pace. He didn’t stop, however, and whilst disappointed not to exceed 100 miles, he was pleased to complete the challenge and raise worthwhile funds.
