The Running Stormtrooper

What happens when a lifelong Star Wars nut decides to combine his passion for charity running with a galaxy far far away? Join host Stu Skinner with his friend Jez Allinson to discuss the Jez’s Running Stormtrooper Project which started in 2016 as a London Marathon attempt with the hope of raising £2000 for Make-A-Wish. Since then the Running Stormtrooper has managed to run 3 x London Marathons, gained a Guinness World Record and completed his challenge in 2018 with a 100km run in armour again for Make-A-Wish but also for the children’s charity Spread-A-Smile. In total over £36,500 was raised between 2016-2018. Now out of retirement the Running Stormtrooper has pledged to run 1000 miles in armour in 2020 including a 100 mile run at Lucasfilm-Pinewood Studios. Each monthly episode will cover a previous chapter of the fundraising/running, an update on how the 2020 challenge is going and a section on running or fundraising top tips! Join these 2 chaps for a light hearted advert free podcast designed to encourage and inspire those who are considering running or charity running.
