OG Completes 10 Marathons in 10 Days

OG Gareth Davies, along with the rest of his team, has recently run 260 miles across Sierra Leone to raise money for charity.

OG Gareth Davies (2004-09, Patchell's) was part of a team of 14 friends who recently undertook a challenge to run across Sierra Leone to raise money for two charities; Street Child and Mind.

The challenege consisted of completing 10 marathons in 10 days in 35 degree heat and 90% humidity, along dirt tracks, uneven terrain, river crossings and dense rainforests - and only half of the inexperienced runners had ever completed a marathon before!
