One Man’s Race Across Scotland

.. for Warrington Youth Club and our sister Onside Youth Zone in Wigan.

Gareth Boyd is a long time supporter of WYC and we are delighted that he chose our charities to benefit from his 2018 fundraising challenge to support our work with children and young people in the area.

The GB Ultra Marathon is a 212 mile event across Scotland in just 4 days and follows the Southern Upland Way from Portpatrick to Cockburnspath.

Gareth is a Business Director at Adele Carr Financial Recruitment and has supported WYC on numerous occasions including as one of the cyclists on the 2017 London to Paris Bike Ride.

To keep Gareth company this summer, members of our Junction Gym will be undertaking their own running challenge.  During the school holidays our young people will take to the treadmills to complete a combined distance of 212 miles. Keep an eye on social media to check the progress of our young runners as they look to emulate Gareth’s fantastic achievement… and feel free to join in or support Gareth (and WYC) by visiting his Virgin Money Giving page

Thank you Gareth on behalf of everyone at WYC for your continued support and we wish you all the very best for taking on this monumental new challenge!
