On Saturday 15 June 2019, twelve members of staff from the Youth Sport Trust took on 'The Wall' challenge, a 69-mile Ultramarathon from Carlisle to Gateshead. The team, which included a mix of experienced runners and relative beginners, ran as part of three four-person relay teams with each team member covering between 16 and 26 miles.
YST were represented by Martin Barradell, Helen Pearce, Dan Wells, Jen Rouse, James Mendes, Selina Kuddus, Chris Ellis, Lucy Ellis, Will Roberts, Ruth Mann, Glen Harrington and Sophie Mileson. You can read a blog on how the team got on here.
Why are we doing it?
The team are fundraising on behalf of YST and aiming to raise an ambitious £5,000. The YST are working hard to ensure every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport. For more information about us and our work please take a wider look at our website.
One of the key features of being part of the YST family is our dedication to the mission of the charity. It’s great to be part of a team who are prepared to take on such a significant challenge to raise funds in support of the young people who benefit from our work in schools and the community.
