New to running or prefer to cycle, walk or swim with friends?

Take a look at our 100 Miles in May challenge.  Anyone can take part in this epic event as how, when and where you cover the miles is entirely up to you.  This could be the month you decide to ditch the car and cycle, run or walk to work.  4 miles a day or 25 miles each weekend, it’s a great way to raise funds for Melanoma Focus.

Please contact if you would like further details or information.
