London Marathon 2015 – Aasha and Sunil’s challenge

On Sunday 26 April 2015 we ran the Virgin London Marathon, something that both of us had always wanted to do albeit knowing that the 26.2 miles would be an enormous challenge, both physically and mentally.We began training towards the end of 2014 and the training was by far the hardest part of the Marathon experience, not least because it meant dragging ourselves out of bed for 7am runs on cold Sunday mornings! Nevertheless, by February we had gone from running what seemed like a never ending 1 or 2 miles to managing a very respectable 15 miles.

BEHT Kilimanjaro Challenge 2012

Mount Kilimanjaro, in Chaga, the ‘Mountain of Greatness’… but in Swahili, the ‘Mountain of Cold Devils’.

BEHT Kilimanjaro Challenge 28 August to 2 September 2011

At 5,895m, Kili is Africa’s tallest mountain and the world’s highest walkable mountain.In March 2011, a group of 20 of us ranging from 18 to 60+ decided to climb Africa’s tallest mountain and raise funds for BEHT’s Hospital project. Behind the scenes, a lot of hard work had gone to ensure everyone was well prepared, well kitted and raising lots of money for a great cause.
