In August 2014 Philip Smith and Warren Mauger took on a challenge of running 7 Marathons in 7 Days. The purpose behind the challenge was simple;
- To raise £20,000 for This Is EPIC and The Hub
- To raise the awareness for both charities
- To change as many lives as possible
Philip and Warren’s running pedigree did not have people overflowing with confidence, Philip had never run a marathon before and Warren had only one under his belt, and it was a very good one.
Philip and Warren had not prepared themselves for the amazing support from the Guernsey community. They had toots, cheers, high-fives and people handing money to them as they churned out the 183.4 miles across the 7 days. Through the incredible support the guys received they were able to exceed the target of £20,000, with the final fundraising figure totalling over £21,000.
