Fifty for Fifty

Celebrating 50 years with 50 Marathons

How about celebrating your 50th birthday by running 50 marathons?

Yes, it’s not for me either, But that’s exactly what our own ultra athlete, Lee Ramsay, has decided to do. He turns 50 later this year and has committed to run 50 marathons over the year raising money for charity. That’s pretty much one a week.

Lee was a regular at the Tuesday evening Kundalini class in pre Covid times; part of the back row of men who would often howl with laughter throughout the class! If you came to the class, you’ll know Lee! He only took up running about 8 years ago and has quickly progressed to running marathons. He says he loves the natural high running gives him, as well we being outside, connecting with nature.

And you can help spur Lee on to complete this mammoth undertaking. He’s raising money for Action on Addiction in memory of his sister Nicola who lost her life to addiction.
