During this Olympic year Peter Rogers & John E Turner ran from John O’Groats to Land’s End. They were raising money in aid of The Cure Parkinson's Trust.

Hi All

Sorry to disappoint but this is definitely not a race - but it is a serious challenge - and our progress will be well worth following. Starting on St George’s Day (23 April 2012) we plan to run 30 miles a day to cover the distance in 29 days; crossing the finish line, at Land’s End, on 21 May.

John and I have run hundreds of miles together over the years and we are really looking forward to our most challenging adventure yet. I think this is probably the ultimate way for us to raise money and publicity for a charity that, for personal reasons, is very dear to my heart.

To help us we have imported (at no cost to you the sponsors) all the way from Tasmania, a crazy Australian - Greg Dwyer, to look after all out needs (as cook, camper van driver, motivator and masseur) and to keep you entertained via the blog - you have been warned!

It’s a huge challenge for us but with your support I feel sure we will make it.
