George is one Tough Mudder for @CRY_UK

CRY, George Pearson.

George completes the Ealing Eagles 10k.

CRY supporter George Pearson completed a 10-mile Tough Mudder endurance event and the Ealing Eagles 10k on successive weekends to raise money and awareness for Tom and Claire’s Fund.

George, who has raised more than £800, said after the Sunday, May 10, race in Gunnersbury Park, Ealing: “The 10k was hard, especially as I’d thought it would be a breeze after the Tough Mudder event the previous Sunday. It turned out to be as much of a struggle but was still well worth it.

“I finished 67th overall in 00:43:57, which was a personal best, so I was pleased with the result, really pleased!”

Reflecting on the two events, George said: “It’s been nearly 30k run over three hours on two Sunday mornings and along the way there has been tear gas, ice baths, log carries, electroshock therapy and lots and lots of mud.

“But to create awareness for what is an important cause and raise 160%+ of my target was an incredible part of what was also a fantastic experience. It’s the first of many fundraising journeys on my part, running for those who can’t.”

As ever, huge thanks to George for putting in the miles on behalf of the Fund.
