Newcastle supporter Josh Bone set out today on his goal of running seven marathons in seven days, and he completed his first marathon, after starting at Trafalgar Square in London, and he hopes to end up on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris next Saturday, 8th September.
Josh Bone – at 8:00 am this morning at Trafalgar Square
He arranged it so he could watch the Newcastle vs Aston Villa game later
Good for him!
Josh is running seven marathons in seven days to raise funds for cancer in memory of his father Ron, who unfortunately died of cancer last year.
But because of various twists and turns today, Josh ran more than the normal 26 miles and 385 yards (approximately of course), and he ran about 30 miles in just five hours – and was then able to watch the Newcastle vs Aston Villa game after that. 😀
You’ve got to get your priorities right.
He sent me an email at half time today, and we was a little bit worried about Newcastle – me too – but at least the lads were a lot better in that second half and got the point.
Josh has a blog you can follow this week, as he attempts his ambitious and brave feat in aid of charity – and you can check up on how he is doing as he runs a marathon a day.
His fund raising link is here or by texting LTOP90 followed by the donation amount to 70070.
We’ll be supporting Josh all week, and we hope you can too.
