Trio to run 45 miles non-stop for Teapot charity

Written by Fiona September 18 2013

Friend and outdoors contact Paddy Cuthbert is about to test himself to the limits on a fund-raising trail run. With a couple of pals, Rob Begg and Joss Mitchell, the East Lothian PR hopes to run the 45-mile route of the John Muir Way in aid of The Teapot Trust, a charity that provides essential art therapy to children battling with lengthy and life-threatening medical conditions.

“We’ll be trying to run the full 45 mile route in one go and knowing that we have sponsorship riding on this challenge will keep us motivated to reach the finish line.”

Paddy would welcome any donation, even few pounds, at Teapot 45 Every penny of the money raised will go towards funding a qualified art therapist at Scottish children’s hospitals for a year.

Perhaps you would also like to join the trio on their run, too? They are aiming at 10 to 12- minute miles for the duration so a few miles should be manageable for most. If you want to join them or just cheer from the sidelines see the Facebook Teapot page.

Good luck Paddy!
