A Trail run of over 1027 miles completed in 40 days (equivalent of just under 40 marathons). The run was a solo challenge and the first complete circumnavigation of Wales on the newly opened Wales Coast Path and the Offa's Dyke Path, with ascents and descents totalling 40,000 meters.

It was carried out to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre and Gozo CCUFoundation, in memory of my parents. 4 pairs of trail shoes, some epic blisters, questionable navigation, awesome scenery, a mental and physical battle and some freaky weather situations later, 10k was raised for charity and the bug for adventure was well and truly caught!

The fundraising is continuing and a new challenge is in the pipeline. www.justgiving.com/dragonrun1027 http://ultrarunningworld.co.uk/dragon-run-1027/
