Operation Long Run update

Latest news of Operation Long Run of which some of you will be aware….

Good afternoon,

As you may already be aware, Mike Crawley set out on Sunday 5th May to run 100 ultra-marathons in 100 days; that is a total of 3300 miles. He then proposes to complete the Three Peaks Challenge at the end of it! This would be a huge undertaking for anyone but given that Mike will be 67 by the time he finishes makes it even more impressive. He truly believes in his family motto of “Fear Naught”.

At this point in time he has covered 3000 miles and only (?) has 10 days to go!

He is raising money for BLESMA the British Limbless Ex-Serviceman’s Association….a very worthwhile cause which is and has done wonderful work for disabled servicemen and women for many years and hopefully will be able to continue their work for as long as they are needed.

If you would like to make a donation to his fund you can do so through Virgin Giving at this address If you donate through Virgin Giving then the money goes straight to BLESMA including gift aid. All donations, big and small will be greatly appreciated!

Mike has benefited hugely from personal messages of support and encouragement throughout his adventure and you can do this (even if you don’t know him) using the email address and Mike will be able to read messages at the end of each day. You can also access information via Facebook. Short videos can be found either on the Facebook page or on YouTube at: &

Please spread the word to any friends who may be interested.

Thank you.

Mike Inkster
