As some of you know I have been signed up for The Great Manchester 10k run at the end of the month for a friend/cavies birthday. I have been working towards it for a while and been part of the reason for my health kick over the last 9 months. I am hoping to make it round in under an hour, but as my first time doing this sort of thing I will actually just be pleased to finish!

With the race now only a few weeks away I have set up a sponsorship page to use it as an opportunity to support a charity that I have been involved with since it was first created: The S.A.M Fund was started in memory of an exceptional child. Sam was born in February 1989 with a very rare blood disorder. He died in October 1997, at the age of eight. Many people felt that the bravery of this child should not be forgotten so the S.A.M. Fund, which stands for Smiles And Memories, was born. The aim of this charity is to send a family with a sick child/children on a wonderful holiday together to give them a break from doctors, hospitals and often unpleasant procedures and allow them to bring back some special Smiles and Memories that will stay with them whatever the future has in store.

If anyone would like to sponsor me, the link is http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RichFundRaisingforSamFund
Or if anyone happens to be in Manchester on Sunday 28th May and wants to cheer me on then let me know!

A 10k in an 1 hour is a fair pace (1km in 6min) but achievable with the amount of work you have put in.
Good luck buddy.

I can't seem to get the link to work, I've tried obvious things.

Can you have a look and see if it's just me?

Thanks

Good luck rich, remember every hour run adds 7 hours onto your life, so it's worth it.

They say that a bacon sandwich reduces your life expectancy by 1/2 an hour, so an hour run = 14 bacon sandwiches I can eat... Now that's motivation!

Thanks to all those that have sponsored me so far, am only £5 off my target. Have just found out the race is being shown on BBC2 Sunday afternoon as well, my section starts at 1.25pm, so might be able to spot me on the telly if you not in a cave that day!

You 'll all be able to spot Rich, he'll be the one with a bacon sandwich on a string and stick contraption, running towards it as it moves ever onwards away from him. Good luck matey!

Thanks to all those that sponsored me, I raised over £900 in total for The S.A.M. Fund, far more then I ever expected!

I completed the 10k run in Manchester on Sunday in a time of 53 minutes 24 seconds, which I was really pleased with. Legs are still aching today but was a very worthwhile experience, especially with everything that happened there last week.
