Target: £1,000
Our Motivation

This started off as a bit of a drunken 'great idea' to run a marathon (none of us being runners, let alone marathon athletes!) in honour of one of us turning 50th this October (that will be Caroline - AKA 'Chicken'). The sober morning "what did I agree too?!" soon changed into "why the bloody hell NOT?" as we are all four very strong willed, determined and possibly a bit mad, women. All with kids, horses, careers...

But which marathon?!! THERE COULD ONLY EVER BE ONE CHOICE! The infamous Marathon du Medoc, yes the one with wine (and cheese, and steak, and oysters, and ice cream) at 22 of the stations over the 26 miles. Running through the beautiful vineyards of Bordeaux on the 2nd September 2023, with 8500 others...oh and yes its in fancy dress. And make no mistake, wine stops or not - this is still a 26 mile marathon (with a bottle of wine in reward as we go over the finish!).

So rain, shine, work commitments, and family (oh and social lives!) have been juggled this year while we have all trained hard. Its been a SLOG!! And its going to be hot as hell!!

We have chosen Movember as our charity of choice, and in particular to raise awareness of mens' mental health as it is something that has touched each one of our lives in some form. Men account for 75-80% of suicides, and in the UK, 3 x more men die from suicide compared to women. Suicide is the single largest cause of death for men under the age of 50. These stats need to change.

So we are doing this for the men; our husbands, boyfriends, dads, stepdads, brothers, our cousins, our colleagues, our friends...in fact YOU! Or certainly someone you know.

PLEASE GIVE what you can, a fiver, a tenner - more...or less, just contribute for this worthy cause.

Thank you.

Men’s mental health is a subject close to my heart- the more we can raise awareness and encourage our boys to talk the better surrounded by people who understand and can help. Proud of you all xx Jo (Forsey)
