New to running, former avid rugby player Tom, unfortunately suffered numerous shoulder injuries and was told last year that he was no longer able to play. To fill his newly acquired spare time, Tom started running, and for the past 12 months has been for a run every single day. He completed his first marathon in September 2015 and has since completed a considerable number of marathons and ultra-marathons. Tom has always been an endurance enthusiast – he completed the demanding Coast To Coast race in 2011, 2012 and 2013 (105 miles of running, cycling and kayaking) and also climbed Kilimanjaro in 2014 (aged just 16).
Tom is running for The ME Association, a UK charity which funds and supports research, and provides information, support and practical advice for people, families and carers affected by M.E. (Myalgic Encephalopathy), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS). He has already raised £7,000 and hopes to raise £15,000.
