100km South Coast Challenge for Dan Burridge

100km South Coast Challenge for Dan Burridge

In 2015 Dan Burridge ran the London Marathon for us. This year he decided to take on a new challenge, and competed in the gruelling South Coast Challenge. This is a 100km Ultra Challenge that takes participants along the South Coast from Eastbourne to Arundel.

Dan took part in this challenge over the August Bank Holiday weekend to raise money for the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre. Unfortunately Dan was injured in the early part of the course but managed to continue to the 54km point with a sprained ankle. It certainly wasn't plain sailing, and in Dan's own words it was '14 hours of walking up and down hills that looked like mountains with a sprained ankle and blisters.'

We are hugely grateful to Dan for soldiering on to the halfway point of the challenge whilst in pain, and for continuing to raise funds for the UCLH Macmillan Cancer Centre.
