Hi - Greg here, Much to the amazement of my family and close friends, I have decided to run, (YES RUN) the ADIDAS Silverstone Half Marathon on 06th March 2011. Now, the thought of running around the legendary circuit that is home to the Formula 1 British Grand Prix is not everybody's cup of tea, (or any other tipple that may be more appropriate), however, having seen some of the Formula 1 Champions past and present navigate their way through the circuit in little under 2 minutes I thought, hey, why not! So here I am, 36 years old and I find myself entering the ADIDAS Silverstone Half Marathon 2011. I can see it now, around Copse, past Maggotts, through Becketts, down Hangar Straight, through Abbey, under Bridge, around Luffield, then Woodcote before... doing it all again. And again. In fact I am not exactly sure how many times! I wonder if I can keep to the racing line... The charity that I am running for is The Lighthouse Club which was set up in 1956. The Lighthouse Club is The Construction Industry Benevolent Fund and helps families of injured or killed workers within the Construction Industry. Being that I have been employed within The Construction Industry for 20 years since leaving school, and my Father for the past 45 years, I figured that this was the most appropriate charity for my 'little run'. Further information on The Lighthouse Club can be found by visiting www.lighthouseclub.org. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.
