Running up for Air
On 31 July, I will be joining trail runners across Europe will be running for 3, 6, 12, or 24 hours as part of Patagonia's Running Up For Air. We will be aiming for a maximum vertical gain, to help raise funds for 18 environmental groups fighting for clean air.
As I'll be running in Oxford, vertical gain is probably going to involve a lot of horizontal gain - about 33 kilometres distance for a kilometre of height, given I have to get down as well as up! But it will probably also involve a lot of bad air as well, which is thoroughly in the spirit of things!
