My River Run Challenge

To fund my trip to Japan I need to raise a total of £3,020. I am raising this money in lots of different ways and one these is to do a sponsored run. I have chosen a challenge to run the length of the River Ouse, as it runs through my home town, York. Me and my mum will run the river in approximately 10K instalments, one every month until we have run 100km from Aldwark to Ousefleet, where the river meets the Humber Estuary. I chose this challenge as I am quite a competent runner and have run with my mum quite a few times. Being a Sea Scout I thought this challenge was great as it’s destination was very relevant. I hope to raise enough money through all the different efforts so that I can also make some contribution back to support my scout group.
