After undertaking the Gobi Ultra last year, I decided I wanted to undertake a really tough challenge, tough enough to urge people to donate to what i see as a really excellent cause: the amelioration of povery in the Sout Gobi region of Mongolia.

From November 8th 2010, until January 31st 2011, I will be running ultra marathons for 85 consecutive days. From the snow in Scotland to the sand dunes of the Sahara, I will be covering just short of 3000 miles, with one aim: Raising £100,000 for the Yamaa Trust.

I have done a fair bit of running before, but this will be very tough. It'll be worth it though, having seen at first hand the amazing work that the Yamaa trust is doing in Mongolia. Every penny raised goes to the Yamaa trust, and every penny goes a long way.
