Ed Cockill of Uckfield Motor Services is up for the ultimate physical challenge… Ed writes…

“I have decided to take on my biggest challenge yet and run a 100km ultra marathon in aid of the charity BEN.

The ultra I have decided to take on is the South Coast challenge that starts in Eastbourne and follows the South Down Way all the way to Arundel. This is no mean feat. I have run marathons and various other endurance events but nothing of this magnitude. This involves 62 miles of running, over 6,000 feet of climbing all in one go. And, I plan on completing it in under 15 hours!

Allow me to explain about the charity, BEN. They support people to navigate life’s challenges, helping them make positive, lasting changes to their lives. They work with individuals & companies to improve people’s health and wellbeing with the automotive industry. 

Having been through my own adversities in the last two years and know people who have used BEN for many reasons I couldn’t think of anyone better to try and raise money for. So any donation would be much appreciated.”

Ed will keep you all updated on my social media on how training and the actually event goes. Naturally, if you’d like to contribute, even a small amount towards Ed’s ultimate challenge, please click HERE.
