My Story

We are a semi-autonomous collective of middling, mediocre long-distance runners based in south London called Barnes Runners. For the past few years we have been associated with and have been serving as ambassadors and fundraisers for Street Child of Sierra Leone. One or two of us have competed in all five Street Child marathons, one of us is a mediocre ultra runner who has competed in events all over the planet, one of us is an old Irish banker who is doing his 70th marathon, one of us is competing in only her third ever marathon. Oh – and we are taking a 13-year-old with us: Rosie.

One of the things we have long given up doing is trying to explain to non-runners why we run. They don't get it and we don't get why they don't get it. They think it is futile and that we are wasting my time (and wearing out the tarmac). That's fine now. We no longer proselytise. Running for no good reason may indeed seem like a strange thing to do. But the fact that we have somehow succeeded in establishing a tradition of intertwining ambitious sporting endeavours with raising both awareness and money... well, we see that as a rather glorious and serendipitous evolution of human custom. Street Child of Sierra Leone (and the thousands of children it has helped over the last six years) would be extremely grateful if you were to consider perpetuating that custom.
