The Challenge


I’m Greg Bowie. I’m just your average guy that does some running to offset the consumption of alcohol, junk food and chocolate. Well, mainly the alcohol.


12 races in 12 months. Oh, and a triathlon – as if things wouldn’t be hard enough.


To raise money for Isabel Hospice in Hertfordshire. Unfortunately a close family friend passed away at the end of 2010, and for the help and support received from Isabel Hospice we’d like to raise a little money as our way of saying thank you.


With quite a lot of sweat, potentially some tears, and almost certainly some injuries.

These are the races – there are some blanks so if you can help out with a race recommendation for the blanks please get in touch!
