John Spayne is running the Haile Gebrselassie Marathon to raise money for For-ethiopia:
Please can you consider sponsoring me to run a Half Marathon in the highlands of Ethiopia on Sunday 20 October to raise money for the Bristol-based registered charity called For-Ethiopia (www.for-Ethiopia.com).
In addition to the usual challenges of age and lack of fitness, I will be adding altitude and heat! This will be “the very first Haile Gebrselassie Marathon” (www.hailemarathon.com). Hopefully, this marathon will become a regular fixture on the world marathon circuit, alongside London, New York, Boston and others – only fitting given Ethiopia’s amazing running heritage.
Any funds raised by donations will be matched by a contribution from the Spayne Lindsay Foundation (http://www.spaynelindsay.com/foundation.html).
