Endurance Prevention Mission

We are Mal Law & James Harcombe.

We know the value of running in beautiful places for managing mental wellbeing. We love Big, Hairy, Audacious personal challenges. And we are passionate about using our love of trail running to make a positive difference in the world. Put all that together and you have Chasing The Dragon - 1700km of tough, hilly trail running around the periphery of Wales to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation of NZ.

Sounds tough? Well, we've made it even tougher... this run has only ever been done once before and it took 40 days. Our aim is to knock it off in just 26 days, and that's with an ascent of Snowdon thrown in for good measure (well, it'd be rude not to eh!)

Our journey will be a very up & down one, both literally and figuratively. In that way it mirrors the battle that so many people have with depression. It will hurt. A lot! Please give what you can to make our pain worthwhile.

THANK YOU for your support.

    I'm just reading your book "One Step Beyond" and am blown away by your achievement in the 7in7. If anyone is capable (or crazy enough!) to embark on this next mission it's you, and even though I don't know you personally I shall be there in spirit with you and James both as you hot foot it around my old stomping ground. Fantastic cause and incredible team effort. All the very best. Can't wait for the updates as they come in!
