A marathon achievement x 10 !

Becky says “ On the 23rd October 2020 I started the Brathay 10 in 10 Challenge. This involved running 10 marathons on 10 consecutive days around Lake Windermere.  262 miles in total and a daily elevation of 2,557ft. Due to Covid, the event was originally moved from May to October. It was an enormous mental and physical test to have the goalposts moved for the event, and the constant uncertainty over the likelihood of it taking place.  Thankfully we avoided being caught in the 2nd lockdown !

 

The course on a good day is tough, but this year we had to contend with biblical weather, relentless rain, flooding, insane drivers and the aftermath of Storm Aiden and fallen trees!

 

Knowing all the money I raised goes to help the life chances of vulnerable children, young people and families in the UK by inspiring them to engage positively in their communities was a great motivator. Through my JustGiving page (www.justgiving.com/fundraising/beckyhb)  I personally raised £3,205.

 

Now I’m back home and working,  I am beginning to reflect and appreciate just what I’ve accomplished. I’m more than pleased with my performance and the mental resilience I showed to complete this. I’m a Yorkshire Lass what would you expect!  Would I do it again? Never say never! “
