Doncaster woman will run 30 miles every day for 30 days to raise money for charity
A Doncaster woman is running from John o’ Groats to Lands End to raise money for a charity close to her heart.
Victoria Hogg enjoys pushing herself with extreme challenges.
She has decided to run the 874 mile journey in 30 days.
Victoria, 35, from Adwick, said: “I’ll be doing 30 miles every day.
“I’ve biked the route before but this is the next step.
“I’ve always liked to run but recently I just got the bug for it.
“For me it’s about endurance not the speed I run.”
She will start this mammoth challenge on May 24.
As she makes her way down the country she will be sleeping in a campervan that friends are driving to help her accomplish her run.
Victoria is hoping to raise a lot of money for Dementia UK.
“I’m a carer for Doncaster Council and I see Dementia’s effect on people every single day,” she said.
“With Covid-19 the isolation people have suffered has just been terrible.
“It’s a cause close to my heart.”
Victoria has been training hard to get ready for the challenge.
She can now run up to 20 miles in one go.
She said: “I just love being in the great outdoors and having adventures.
“I get a buzz from seeing how far I can push my body.
“I’m going to embrace every minute of it.”
Victoria would like to thank all of the sponsors who have gotten involved with her run.
