Double Ultra Marathon Challenge for Steve Jones

In May 2015 our Technical Manager, Steve Jones, completed his first Ultra Marathon Challenge raising an amazing £400 for Velindre Cancer Centre. He ran the Brecon to Cardiff Ultra Marathon, which was 42 miles long in 7 hours and 57 Minutes – just within his 8 hour target!

Steve has decided to take the challenge one step further this year and run two Ultra races within 2 weeks of each other. Once again he is raising money for the Velindre Cancer Centre.

Steve will begin his double challenge on Sunday 17th April starting with a 50k (31 miles) around the Brecon Beacons, iincluding an ascent of Pen-y-Fan and the other high mountains of the Beacons. Then on 1st May, just two weeks later, he will be taking part in another 42 mile Ultra from Brecon to Cardiff.

On his JustGiving page Steve comments “Half of all donations will go to Velindre’s Stepping Stones Appeal, which was set up to research and fight against lung cancer. My cousin is currently fighting this disease having had treatment at Velindre. The other half will go to Velindre’s “Victory over Cancer” campaign which will help the fight against all types of cancers”

We’d like to wish Steve good luck in his challenge’s and you can sponsor him through his JustGiving page here.
