Sergeant Sean Dunbabbin, who is serving at the Army Foundation College in Harrogate, has decided to take on a huge challenge in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Running a marathon is no small task for most people, but Sean is taking on nine marathons over nine days!

Six days in to his challenge, Sean is running at Heaton Park in Greater Manchester, today, hopefully finishing no later than 4pm. Guided and supported by a small team, he started on 29th April at Rowley Park in Staffordshire. His full running schedule is as follows:

29th April – Rowley Park, Staffordshire

30th April – Markeaton Park, Derbyshire

1st May – Wollaton Hall, Nottinghamshire

2nd May – Hartsholme Country Park, Lincolnshire

3rd May – Graves Park, Sheffield

4th May – Heaton Park, Greater Manchester

5th May – Haydock Park, Cheshire

6th May – Leeds Armoury, Leeds

He would welcome any support during his runs which start between 9am-10am each day, and you would like to sponsor his efforts, you can do so here:

Brigadier (Ret’d) Robin Bacon, Chief of Staff ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, comments: “Having cheered on all the runners at the London Marathon recently, I saw how running just one is a really tough task, let alone one a day for nine days. We would like to thank Sean for his support and wish him the very best with this incredible feat!”
