We did it! We’ve come to the end of Team #Power2InspireUK’s inclusive Run Everyone event: 31 days of running, walking, wheeling and more! Together we’ve raised over £4,000 and as a team travelled 3,758km.

Power2InspireUK competed alongside 106 other teams as part of Cambridge Half Marathon’s Run Everyone event this March, coming in 15th overall. Shout out to the winning team, the No Drama Llama Runners, mainly because that is the best team name I’ve ever heard, but also because between them they travelled 26,370km!

Our inspirational Founder and CEO, John Willis, set himself the challenge of walking a half marathon over the course of March, and in the end ‘waddled’ 29.5kms. This was 20 laps of the garden every day, and a bonus 2kms playing a round of golf at Cambridge Lakes golf course.

“It was really useful having the simple target of 20 laps every day to keep me moving because I know that it’s really important for me as a disabled person to keep the exercise up,” John said. “It was also really helpful to know there was a team of others doing it; Rosie doing her wheelchair spins every day, and others including Morris and Massimo who’ve come out and run for Power2Inspire.”

It was a tight competition for longest distance among the P2I team: Morris de Bortoli just pipped Richard Laybourne and Scott Annett to the top of our leaderboard. He ran 426km during March, which is a fantastic achievement.

And with generous donations from Jeremy, Mark, Morris and many others, we’re close to reaching our target of raising £5,000. Your donations will go towards putting on PowerHouseGames in schools once we’re out of lockdown and supporting our Festivals of Inclusive Sport this summer. So far we’ve got cricket, tennis, golf, boccia and badminton festivals in the works – confirmed details below with more to come!
