Held every year, the great midlands fun run is an 8.5 mile all tarmac route that takes you through the heart of Sutton Coldfield including Sutton Park where you must endure what is commonly known as ‘cardiac hill’. This year our charity of choice was Jersey Hospice Care who are a specialist palliative nursing service which provides holistic care, free of charge, for patients with cancer and motor neurone disease.

Myself, Dave and Hayley set off and immediately i was left on my own as Dave and Hayley better navigated themselves around the hoards of other runners (and walkers). Nevertheless, we all completed the run within 20 minutes of each other and in the process, earned a respectful amount of money for charity 🙂
