There will always be ups and downs, highs and lows. This blog aims to highlight some of the positives to have happened to the Running Stormtrooper Project over the last few months. Fundraising is going well, a personal best achieved and both the BBC and ITV featured Stormy in the same week!

It's been busy that's for sure :)

Trooper Down! 

At the point of writing this blog I haven’t run since October the 4th as I hurt my right foot during the Virtual London Marathon. It started to hurt at the halfway point but I needed to complete it. I wasn’t going to quit but my determination may have come at a cost.

In April 2020 I deployed to Afghanistan, to an altitude of 6000 feet. Conditions were warm and dusty, not really ideal for running, let alone running in a Stormtrooper costume. Over the following few months it would become scorching hot but I still had more miles to run in the costume. Could it be done?
