13 in Thirteen – Raising Money For the NSPCC

Guest Blogger: Richard Hayes

In 2013, I will be competing in not 1 but 13 official 10km races over the year.


For those who don’t know me, my name is Richard Hayes and I’m a 31 year old from North Sheffield. In 2012, I managed to lose over 4 stone in just under 4 months. This was partly due to my fondness for running. I have already completed three 10km races and my PB was set on 2nd Dec and is 50:15.

The NSPCC is a charity that I have a lot time for. The NSPCC was there for me when I suffered abuse as a child and I want to say thank you for all their help and support. Plus, with my new found love of running, I wanted to do something that is different and will get people talking about it. This will hopefully raise a nice total for the charity and raise awareness at the same time.

The planned races are as follows. These are subject to change and I will keep these updated as soon as know of any changes:
