In 30 minutes Timesulin ambassador Gavin Griffiths will start his epic run between Hastings Pier to Brighton Pier, with a hilly climb at Beach Head thrown in. A total of 40 miles to help raise awareness for JDRF UK.
What: Bexley-local ultra marathon runner Gavin Griffiths aims to run 40 miles – from Hastings Pier to Brighton Pier – in one day to raise awareness and funds for JDRF UK, one of the UK’s leading diabetes charities. Gavin was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2000 and will have to incorporate numerous pit stops to check his blood sugar and adjust his blood glucose levels by ingesting sugar or insulin along the hilly track.
You are invited to take photos, write and tweet about Gavin’s mission – and invite your friends to join in too!
