Lauren’s trip to the Great Rift Valley

Update posted by Lauren Burton On Sep 28, 2018

We swam across the channel!! Setting off from Dover at 1 am on 27th September, we reached the (very welcomed) French shore 9 hours and 56 minutes later. It was a tiring and challenging experience, yet one of the most incredible days of my life so far. An achievement I, and I hope my team too, remember for a long time.

Hi all.

The channel relay has finally been rescheduled and we're hoping to dive in this week!

I'm also just about ready for the half marathon on 7th October. I've completed my longest training run and I'm about to taper down and shorten the distance, which my legs are very much looking forward to!

Thanks so much again for all your donations.

Hello! Thank-you so much for all of your donations so far.

I'm now fully immersed into my training programme for the Oxford Half Marathon in October. My legs are feeling less jelly-like every run and it feels good to be building some (relative!) speed. I'm currently in Iceland doing research for my dissertation, so I'm getting some good hill training in by running around volcanoes!

Please keep sending in ideas for any challenges you'd like to see me face during my fundraising efforts and keep spreading the word about my project, it is greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone, thank-you so much for your generous donations so far, I am blown away and so thankful!

A quick update from me: unfortunately, the channel relay has been postponed due to bad weather. Hopefully this will take place later in the summer.

Now to find my trainers to begin training for the Oxford half marathon...
