Hadrian's Wall Run

Rob McLoughlin

Two weekends ago, Haddenham resident, Rob McLoughlin, ran the length of Hadrian's Wall — from Carlisle in the West to Newcastle in the East: a total distance of 69 rugged cross-country miles! That's the equivalent of more than two-and-a-half marathons in two consecutive days!!

His run was in aid of the charity 'Kids N Cancer' — a cause Rob wanted to support from what he saw about Alexander, the boy who needed thousands of pounds for treatment. That story also made a significant impression on his own two young children: Maggie, 5 and Eddie, 7.

Rob ran with Matt Frost, a friend from Wendover, who was also mad enough to take on this type of challenge!

Although Rob has run marathons in the past, he has never run this far on two consecutive days. He and his chum managed to complete the arduous challenge in a total of 15 hours and 31 minutes, and in the process Rob raised over £960 for Kids N Cancer

If you'd like to help boost Rob's fundraising efforts to help top the £1,000 mark, please visit his donation site here.
