To ensure that I am able to run 100km in one day in the costume I am going to have to begin running at midnight! My initial intention was to run around Black Park again and pass once more through the gates of Pinewood Studios for the last mile. However, running at midnight in Black Park would be impossible due to a lack of illumination. I needed a new plan!

So 2017 was an incredible year for the Running Stormtrooper. I thought that would be the end of it, the end of the Make A Star Wars Wish project. I had achieved what I had set out to achieve, I had smashed my target and gone out on a high, plus importantly I stopped it before my friends and family began to tire of my Star Wars alter ego! However...

I then put on the helmet.  So I now can’t bend over, bend my knees much, tie my shoes, scratch my face, go to the toilet, see much, hear much, can’t drink, can’t eat.
