The Running Stormtrooper Project began in early 2016 as a low profile, one off charity run. Since then the charity running has grown in challenge and success. The fundraising target was initially £2000, however so far over £63,000 has been raised (£70,000 inc Gift Aid).

...The curse of 2020 remained relentless! After a whole year of: re-plans, cancelations and an element of injury, the night before my final Stormtrooper run saw yet another hiccup due to emergency governmental COVID measures. The whole event/route had to be scrubbed, it was time for another rapid re-plan.
In truth, I didn’t care where I would run, after having covered 982 Stormtrooper miles in 2020 (162 of them over the last 19 days) I just wanted to finish this…
Disaster struck at the beginning of November when a pain in my right forced me to go to the doctors. I was sent for an x-ray to check for a suspected stress fracture however it turned out to be some soft tissue damage, probably due to really pushing myself during the 80km session I ran in September.
