John Lee, pictured left is taking on a huge challenge in order to raise funds for the charity Epilepsy Action. John's son Thomas is an epilepsy sufferer and he wants to give back to the charity that has supported his family over the years. Here is what he had to say:
"So I am going to compete in at least 11 fell running races in and around Derbyshire over the next year. Ten of these are part of the Gritstone Series. In total I will be running roughly 100 miles, it's going to be incredibly challenging as navigation around these courses is not easy and certain safety equipment is required for some events.
"The first event I am doing is the Lost Lad fell race on my 42nd Birthday on the 28th September. My knees aren't great from two operations in the past so I may hobble my way around some of the events but I want to to raise awareness for Epilepsy to help people with Thomas's condition."
John is hoping to raise £2000 for the charity.

Good luck, John!
