Running across Europe to end the exploitation of Refugees starting in May 2020 in aid of


Run to Refuge is a 2000 mile run from Greece to London to raise awareness of the needs of the most vulnerable people in society including refugees and survivors of exploitation and modern slavery. By making the journey across Europe on foot I will experience some of the challenges that refugees experience and highlight how the right of asylum is fundamental to a compassionate society.


Run to refuge is raising money for the Tribe Freedom Foundation to support their aim of ending modern slavery.


If you would like to donate to the cause please head over to JustGiving and let's end modern slavery together.


If you would like to consider joining me for part of or all of the run to run or be part of the support crew, I would love to hear from you so please do get in touch using the form below.


I am also hoping to find people who might be able to provide some support along the way, perhaps with driving a support vehicle, providing accommodation or even some financial assistance. If you think you can help at all please do get in touch. Any support would be very gratefully received. 


Thanks so much

Full Route Update

Sorry for the amount of time since I posted an update... I will endeavour to improve this with weekly updates from now on.

Since the last post I have now got the route pretty much locked down, with targets for each day throughout the journey and dates I expect to be various places. The dates are locked with a definite start date of 1 May and a target to finish in Central London on 2 August. The route I have planned is 3600km and will take 93 days to complete. I have planned in rest days every week, which will allow my body to recover and for completion of chores such as washing and shopping.

The weekly targets are shown below with the distances aimed for each week.

If you would like the full route detail the follow table shows the daly targets and distances, I will also be uploading the GPX files for each day shortly
