Marathon Man

We're delighted (and a little bit awestruck) to annouce that Phil Perry, one of our Senior Operations Managers, will be running a minimum of 15 marathons and ultra-marathons this year in aid of Julia's House.

Phil is a very keen runner, and has decided for our 25th Anniversary Year to combine his love of running with fundraising for a very worthwhile cause.

Julia's House is not a typical children's hospice. They provide practical and emotional support for families across Dorset and North Wiltshire who are caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community, or at the hospice.

Phil is going to be running the following marathons and ultra-marathons:

  1. 5th Feb - Portland / Weymouth marathon
  2. 12th March  - Larmer Tree Marathon, Tollard Royal
  3. 2nd April - Manchester Marathon
  4. 23rd April - Southampton Marathon
  5. 1st May - Milton Keynes Marathon
  6. 28th May - Dorchester Marathon
  7. 11th June - Yeovil Marathon
  8. 18th June - Hampshire Hobbit Marathon, Kingsclere
  9. 2nd Jult - Littledown Marathon, Bournemouth
  10. 29th July - Dorset Invader Marathon, Blandford
  11. 13th August - Salisbury 54321 Ultra (50k)
  12. 9th September - Thames Path Ultra (100k) Putney to Henley
  13. 8th October -- Bournemouth Marathon
  14. 19th November - Phoenix Marathon, Walton-On-Thames
  15. 16th December - Bovington Marathon

The above list may change, as Phil is still adding marathons to his list.
