Simon Staples, audit manager at Connect Plus Services, an operating company for the M25 in the United Kingdom (and an Egis subsidiary) has set himself the challenge of running in a sponsored event in aid of the Leatherhead Youth Project (LYP) which supports socially and economically disadvantaged young people in Leatherhead. This ultra-marathon, the Windsor Ultra, covering a distance of 43 miles, requires intense preparation. Simon has already completed at least nine marathon distance runs, and two other ultra-marathons. To support the charity, he took part in three of these races over the summer.
