Matt Sinclair's aiming to run between all 10 of Wiltshire Council's leisure centres for charity.

Matt, who works at Salisbury's Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre, is starting his run today (Monday 9th March) from the Nadder Centre in Tisbury.

The whole run's due to take five days finishing on Friday (13th March), covering a daunting 100 miles.

This means he'll be running an average of 25 miles a day, almost a daily marathon.

MATT'S RUN ROUTE

  • Day one: Tisbury to Devizes (29 miles)
  • Day two: Devizes to Corsham to Calne (25 miles)
  • Day three: Calne to Marlborough (14 miles)
  • Day four: Marlborough to Pewsey to Tidworth (17 miles)
  • Day five: Tidworth to Durrington to Amesbury to Salisbury (20 miles)

Matt picked his route to put Wiltshire Council's leisure centres on display - and raise money for charity:

"I'm doing the self-set challenge in support of Sport Relief to help raise the awareness of the fantastic work that the charity carries out and to promote the benefits of exercise, while showcasing our fantastic leisure facilities within the county."

He's raised around £270 so far, and he's set up a Just Giving Page to keep the money coming in while he's away for his week of running.
