On the 12th September 2018, Henry Blois-Brooke, of Oxford Brookes University BC, completed an insane feat of an Ultra-Marathon in just over eight hours, after racing in both the U23 Worlds coxed four and the U23 European coxless-pair over the summer. Henry said although it was tough, he felt like he could and would push himself more in the future. The next challenge is 192 miles, in only 6 days, pushing himself to seven marathons in less than a week.

The Wainwright Coast to Coast

More commonly known as a hill walk, spread out over a period of 12 days, the course he has chosen to tackle was officially created in 1973 by Alfred Wainwright. Starting at St Bees Head in Cumbria, on the west of the UK, the course will take Henry through three separate National Parks (Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors), before reaching the finishing point at Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire, on the East coast. 

 

The Charities

Henry will be running for two separate charities throughout the course, splitting the proceeds 50/50.

Myaware

The first charity Henry is running for is called Myaware. They support sufferers of Myasthenia Gravis, a disease that Henry's uncle has suffered from for the past ten years. It is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles. The money raised will go towards both researching for a cure, as well as supporting current sufferers and their families.

Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes is a charity that Henry and his family have supported in the past, most notably on his run last September. With future aims to join the Royal Marines, there is a close link between Henry and the Armed Services. Help for Heroes supports members of the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service.

We wish Henry the very best on his run and already have much more planned to support him alongside in late summer.
