The Running Guy

Last weekend was the first running event from the amazing Sarah Guy, who is doing an unbelievable amount of running this year -- all in the name of helping people with OCD through raising awareness and donations!

This year, Sarah will be competing in an astonishing nine running events this year. That’s a huge amount of commitment, so thank you so much Sarah!

These are all the runs Sarah will be involved in:

  • 19 March: Thirsk 10 Miler
  • 22 April: Hamsterley Forest 10K
  • 7 May: Sunderland Half Marathon
  • 28 May: Northallerton 10K
  • 9 July: Great North 10K
  • 13 August: Darlington 10K
  • 3 September: Tees Pride 10K
  • 10 September: Great North Run
  • 8 October: Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon

That’s a whopping 150km of running in total -- in the space of just seven months!

OCD has affected my life for over a decade. Having emailed back and forth with a couple of different charities about raising money for them through my running, I decided to go with OCD Action as it quite simply feels like the right choice.

Sarah began her journey last Sunday in the Thirsk 10 Miler. Despite coming down with a nasty cold the day before the event, the run was a huge success: she managed to complete the 10 mile run in 01:29:36, which she was “over the moon” with.

So congratulations to Sarah, and we wish her the very best of luck for her upcoming running challenges!
