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

Nine weeks to go

Wow, can you believe it, there are only 9 weeks to go before I face my biggest challenge to date.

It was great to meet up and run with all the people from TRIBE Run for Love III this week at the Maverick X Tribe Run Free. I also had a good run around the half marathon course - took it easy and kept it controlled to try to avoid injury. There was mud, mud, and a lot more mud. Once I found skin under the mud I felt good.  I am grateful that my legs recovered well for another run on Sunday. The weekly mileage is building now and I’m feeling good.

Unfortunately, I’ve come down with a head-cold, so I am focusing on eating well and taking it easy for the next few days to try and shift it quickly as possible; missed time can be detrimental to my training.

For those of you who are still interested in volunteering your time, I’m still looking for crew for the beginning of the run and would love to hear from anyone who would be able to help out.  Please feel free to drop by the website and fill in the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

All in all, it has been a relatively quiet week, still plodding forward and having meetings with people who support us in this monumental journey.  I had a meeting with the Rotary Club this week and I will let you know more details about it in my next blog. So stay tuned……

Thank you for all your continued support.
