Help me plot routes for 40 marathons in 40 days

My DofE Diamond Challenge

On the 16th July I will start what might well be one of the biggest physical challenges I have ever faced. I’ll be completing 40 marathons in 40 days aiming to raise £1m for The Prince’s Trust. This will also be my DofE Diamond Challenge.

More than a few people have said I’m bonkers, many more have said ‘Good on you Mike’ but now I’m asking for more than words, I need your help.

I will be completing 40 different marathons over 40 days within the city of London, visiting landmarks and business who have supported my challenge with donations along the way.

Can I add your business to my route?

If you work in London and would like to support The Prince’s Trust’s efforts to give more young people the same opportunities as you and I, all you have to do is pledge your donation and I will include a visit to your site in one of my routes.

This is not only an opportunity to support disadvantaged young people, it’s an opportunity to have some fun and raise morale in your office, show the world that your business cares about others, and even grab some pictures for your own PR and CSR efforts.
Hey, you could even come outside and run a mile or two with me!

To find out more about why I have stepped up to this enormous challenge read my story here.

To help me plot my routes and give me a place to drop in and say hi please contact me. If there is a specific date or week you’d like me to visit please note that too.

To pledge your support please click here.

Please share this with anyone you know who is working in London and would like to give a new opportunity to a young person from the Prince’s Trust and be a part of this exciting challenge.

Please also follow me on Twitter and share my progress, I will appreciate the support I can get along the way!

I look forward to meeting you!
