The Trailblazers Club
In October 2017, Josh, Thomas and Hadyn will be travelling over 3000 miles from home to take on the Wadi Rum Ultra Marathon in support of YoungMinds!
The Trailblazers Club was created in early 2017. It originated from a group of friends who wanted to create a club where like-minded people can come together, achieve amazing feats and create long-lasting, positive social impact.
On 9th October the team will tackle their first feat, taking part in the Wadi Rum Ultra Marathon to raise a target of £20,000 for YoungMinds. It will be a grueling week of running through the vast surroundings of The Valley of the Moon in the Jordanian Desert. With average temperatures of 20ºC and highs of as much as 30ºC, this will be the ultimate test of each runner’s stamina, resilience and will power. Aiming to complete the route covering 260km in just five days, Josh, Thomas and Haydn have been training for months to be ready for this demanding personal challenge.
We cannot thank the Trailblazers Club enough for their support. The Wadi Rum Ultra Marathon is no mean feat, and their dedication to training, alongside raising awareness and funds for YoungMinds has been unbelievable. The thousands they have raised and continue to raise will make a real difference to our charity.
