White Star Running aims to organise fun, sociable and value for money running events, for runners of all abilities, with no corporate claptrap. We believe in races that are tough, marshals that are friendly, views that are awesome and beer that is cold.
We are very conscious these days that running has been somehow hijacked by big companies organising events to make a quick buck.
We like to think we are not like other companies.
We are very pleased to be helping "The Machine" in his quest to run Brathay 10 Marathons in 10 days
Hes a great lad, but a bit nuts, hes run a load of our events and we like him :)

I'm really pleased to announce that I have been fortunate enough to be selected to run the Brathay 10 in 10!!
10 Marathons around the beautiful Lake Windermere in 10 consecutive days!!
This will challenge me not just physically but mentally as well. Having completed the Enigma Week at the knees, 7 marathons in 7 days, I know what will be expected of my body and mind, although at least during those 7 days there were 3 different courses.
The Windemere marathon is known to be one of the UKs toughest road marathons. So why would I wish to run it in 10 consecutive days? Because the challenge is there, but also to raise vital funds for the Brathay Trust, who work with disadvantaged children across the UK.
All I need to do is from now until May 8th, is condition my body and mind, and raise a huge amount of cash!!
I shall be having a raffle via my Just Giving page for a chance to win a brand new Apple Ipad Air (worth over £300).
All you need to do, is go to my Just Giving Page https://www.justgiving.com/Dennis-Cartwright10/ and sponsor me a minimum of £1. For every £1 you put in, you enter your name into the draw. So £10 would put your name in 10 times. Please make sure you give your name and state "IPAD" when sponsoring. The draw will be made on the 15th December so the prize will arrive in time for Christmas!!
Please share the raffle with your friends, family and work colleagues!
Please also visit this blog frequently to see how my training is going and to see what other exciting fundraising events will be going on.
