Great Britain : an ultra-marathon to benefit socially and economically disadvantaged young people

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.
