Three marathons in a row

Adam is running in memory of SAC Ryan Tomlin, who lost his life serving with the RAF Regiment in AfghanistanAdam Keen is running three marathons in four days in memory of Ryan Tomlin, who died in Afghanistan. Adam tells us more in this blog.

Last year in April, I completed a 244 mile bike ride in seven days after a lot of training. At the end I said I couldn't do anything like that again.

But a few more weeks, I changed my mind and thought how can I better the bike ride, make it more of a challenge. So I have come up with the idea of completing three marathons in four days.

I wanted to do more for the RAF Benevolent Fund as both of my challenges are in memory of SAC Ryan Tomlin who was sadly killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan. I am hoping this is just a small token of appreciation for what the RAF do.

The training for the marathons has been very tough especially with the weather. I have been running around the Worthing area building my stamina up.

I have finally planed all my four routes for each day. The first day will be from Worthing to Steyning and back. The second day I will start from Worthing and go to the Chalk Pitt woods and back.

On the third day I will start from Worthing and go to Climping past Littlehampton and back and on the fourth day I will run from Worthing to Brighton pier and back.

I have also planned a cake sale and tombola at my work on the 1 February and I am hoping this will bring in a lot more sponsorship, awareness of the RAF Benevolent Fund and hopefully help smash the amount I raised last year of £1,050.
