Ian's Epic 5 Marathons in 5 Days challenge for Heads On

When the training schedule includes actual marathons you know this is something special! Our amazing supporter Ian Puttock is running a massive 5 marathons in 5 days, raising money for Heads On and undertaking his biggest running challenge so far.

Ian's clear that running has helped him through some really difficult times. 'Losing my wife ten years ago turned my world upside down by suddenly finding myself with four children to bring up on my own. I was lucky enough to meet someone else and it is largely thanks to Alison that I started running. I found this really helped with my own mental health. By running for Heads On I want to help people currently suffering with mental health problems.

Ian’s five days of marathons, organised by Sussex Trail Events, begin on Monday 25 June and all start at 6pm. He will be running:

Day 1 - Worthing Promenade
Day 2 - Sea Lane Cafe, Marine Crescent, Worthing
Day 3 - Highdown Hill
Day 4 - Findon Cricket Club, Long Furlong
Day 5 - Widewater, Shoreham Beach

If you can get there to cheer him along please do! It's an amazing challenge and he's an inspiration. We're really proud of you Ian - good luck and thank you!
