Sarah Smith, from Leeds, is fundraising throughout the year for the Bhopal Medical Appeal. Sarah raised £496 in the Brighton marathon, in 2014, she then raised £358 for the Appeal running in the 2015 London Marathon and decided to set up a Justgiving page to continue to raise money throughout 2015.
Thus far, Sarah has completed the Timeless Way route through the Outer Hebrides, a long distance route of 230 miles, over 10 days. She was forced to miss out a short stretch due to adverse weather conditions coupled with the extremely remote terrain that was involved that day.
Other events Sarah has competed in during 2015 so far include: The Lyke Wake Race, a 42 mile race across the North York moors; the Lakeland 50, which is a 50 mile trail run from Dalemain to Coniston, also in July; the Long Tour of Bradwell, a 34 mile trail run in the Peak district on 8 August; and just last weekend, the 22nd August, the Snowdonia 50, a gruelling 50 mile ultra marathon in the Snowdonia national park.
She’ll be following these by running the Yorkshireman Off Road Marathon on 13 September, the Full Tour of Pendle fell race on 14 November and the Auld Lang Syne Fell race on 31 December 2015 in Haworth.
Sarah also took part in the Etape Du Dales, a 112 mile cycle sportive in the Yorkshire Dales in May and the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire sportive earlier that month and is looking forward to taking part in the Big Leeds 100 sportive in September.
Sarah started running in 2007, and has built up her distance from 5k to 60 miles having completed the Hardmoors 60 and the Fellsman. She enjoys running and cycling long distances and appreciates she is fortunate to have good health.
