This is Robbie's first go at the Great South Run, having successfully completed the Great North Run previously.
A sports enthusiast, Robbie has always played football, with a fair amount of running too. Recently, Robbie has started taking training more seriously, competing in races for running, swimming and cycling.
Having signed up for a half iron man next year, Robbie's not only joining our team to help us raise much needed funds, but is also using this challenge to boost his own personal training efforts for the year ahead.
"Training is going really well, there are some VERY early starts. I swim and run every day, so fingers crossed I'll be in good fitness for the October run."
To support Robbie and our dedicated team, please donate here. It really will make the world of difference to our children and communities in rural Tanzania.
