Andrew Williams to take on a ultra-marathon for BBC Children In Need 

By 17th November 2023News

Our East Midlands, Lincolnshire & Yorkshire branch’s Head of Operations, Andrew Williams, is taking on a ultra-marathon around Shipley Country Park, Derbyshire on 26th November to raise money for BBC Children in Need. Andi has set up a Just Giving page with a target of £500. 

Out of work, Andi can be found pushing himself in aid of others. 10 years ago, he ran in the London Marathon for Mencap, and he jumped 3,500 feet from the ground doing a Static Line Parachute Jump.  

I wouldn’t class myself as an adrenaline junkie” mentions Andi. “Ever since I have read Can’t Hurt Me and Never Finished by David Goggins, I’ve wanted to push and to find out more about myself. I’m always in the gym and enjoy HIIT sessions, recently I’ve started doing 10k on the treadmills to get ready for the 50k around Shipley Park. 

Andi not only limits himself to running marathons and jumping out of planes, but he’s also found UWCB (Ultra White-Collar Boxing) raising money for Cancer Research UK, Wolf Run Autumn and Winter for Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Special Care Baby Units, Foremarke Hall Triathlon as well as Tough Mudder. 

We all wish Andi huge congratulations for what he’s achieved as well as luck for the 50k ultra-marathon for BBC Children in Need!
