My friend John is running 10km on April 6th, which is an awfully long way given that he doesn't particularly enjoy running. It's going to hurt. But it'll hurt him a bit less if you send a few quid to Oxfam and/or Amnesty International through his sponsorship form. Remember, John's running so you don't have to. A few quid from you (yes, you! even, or perhaps especially if you don't know him) will make his day, quite apart from possibly saving somebody's life somewhere in the world. See John's blog post about the run here, and a piece from Leamington's local paper about the 10km event here. It's worth reading that newspaper story just to confirm that the race really is sponsored by a solicitors' firm called Wright Hassall. Crazy name, crazy guys.
I've checked out the route and there are some rather alarming slopes.
