Athlete aims to complete 52 half marathons in the year, runs Kent Coastal Half-marathon

Another athlete taking part in the Kent Coastal Half-marathon is David Drozdziak who is aiming to run 52 half marathons in the year in order to raise money for the charity Basic Foundations, which helps organisations and community groups in low income countries get the basic necessities they require such as  sanitation, shelter, health, water, food and education.

David said, ’I recognise my year-long challenge will be difficult and I will need lots of support along the way. To that end, I am thankful for Thanet Roadrunners for supporting me by allowing me to run in the Kent coastal half marathon for free. This fantastic gesture will ensure that I am able to raise as much money as possible and make an even greater difference to the lives of those who just need a little bit of help to be able to help themselves’. 

He added, ‘I have only ever passed through Kent previously so I think it is a really exciting way to actually see the area. I have tried to get some variety in my runs through the year instead of treading the same familiar paths each time as it makes it a lot easier if you are seeing new sights each time instead of ticking off familiar checkpoints. This has sent me to Leeds, Southend and one in Basel which went into Germany and France from Switzerland in one race so it has been really inspiring. I think it will be great to run along the coast and I’m just hoping it’s not too windy as it is enough of a struggle as it is’.

David has managed 31 half marathons so far (by 14th August) and is looking to raise at least £10,000 in the year.  If you want to support him is charity page is www.justgiving.com/droz52
