Serial fundraiser completes another leg of mega-challenge in aid of The Maypole Project
PUBLISHED: 06:00 24 September 2013
Running a marathon would leave most experienced runners gasping for breath, but one serial fundraiser went a couple steps further.
Phil Price, 31, ran a 100km course as part of a series of 10 challenges he has set himself to raise money for The Maypole Project – a charity which supports children with complex medical needs.
Speaking after the race Mr Price revealed he was not as fatigued as he thought he would be.
He said: “I felt alright when I finished, mentally it was quite tough though. By the following Monday I felt I had fully recovered.
“I am quietly happy that the 100km run is out of the way and I am confident that I will be able to do the next five challenges.”
The run means Mr Price, of Copers Cope Road, Beckenham has now reached the halfway mark of his gruelling self-inflicted challenge.
He plans to complete a 12km mud run called Back to the Trenches in October.
