On Wednesday, 30th June 2021, 20 men will be commencing the challenge of running from the market cross in Devizes to Westminster Bridge and back again over 4 days.
Strakers auctioneer, Charlie Doel is one of the 20 men taking park in this journey covering 250 miles in total via the tow path of the Kennet Avon Canal and then following the River Thames into the centre of London.
The challenge is a run in a relay for four teams of five people, each leg will be around 5 miles in length and over the course of the event every runner will be covering at least 60 miles.
Charlie is taking part because in November 2019 he unfortunately lost one of his great friends, Tony Poole to a rare autoimmune blood disease called Haemophagocytic
Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). For this reason, he is taking on this challenge in support of Histiocytosis UK so that others can hopefully be able to overcome this illness in the future.
