Farron to run charity half marathon on Saturday

Tim Farron has never been known for being able to sit still for more than 30 seconds. The word “irrepressible” was probably invented for him. Even so, running a half marathon up a whole load of hills is a tall order, even for him.

But that’s what he’s doing on Saturday to raise money for  local hospice care.

I know what it’s like to have a wonderful hospice nurse come out to care for a loved one on Christmas Day. They were able to turn distress into comfort.  They are also thee to support the whole family. Almost 30 years on, I haven’t forgotten what those nurses meant to my family so I totally empathise with this campaign.

It occurred to me that our readers might like to support Tim in his efforts, so here is a link to his Just Giving Page. If you want to know more about the route and the hills he will have to scale, have a wee look here. It’s not for the faint hearted.

Exceptionally hilly with some parts of the course climbs being 1:3 this challenging race attracts a both seasoned runners as well a large number of ordinary people looking to challenge themselves.

The accompanying picture shows a much easier way of doing it.

It is certainly one way to prepare for your party conference.
