Giles Clayton

4 miles every 4 hours in 48 hours

I am taking on the 4/4/48 Challenge created by Navy Seal  - Mr David Goggins. This challenge entails running 4 miles (6.4km) every 4 hours for 48 hours. 

I'll be starting the first 4 mile leg at 4pm on the 25th of June and I'll be starting the last 4 mile leg at 12pm on the 27th of June. 

The start and finish to each leg will be at 1 Holman Street, Kangaroo Point, QLD. 

Why is this important to me? 

For most of my adult life I've suffered from Generalised Anxiety Disorder & Depression. 

I want to  help support the people who have supported me. As such, raising money for The Black Dog Institute was a "no-brainer". The Black Dog Institute is an organisation with a mission to enable mentally healthier lives through innovations in science, medicine, education, public policy and knowledge translation.

If we can raise $5,000, then that enables 10 high schools to receive mental health education, reaching 800 more young people and their families.

I believe if we can support the youth with mental health education, then we're intervening early. If we can assist the youth with the necessary tools today, then perhaps, we can reduce the negative impact mental illness has on our society tomorrow. 

How tough is this challenge? 

It's just shy of two marathons in two days. 

So please donate today! If you're unable to donate? No worries - feel free to share this page to a friend or family member. If you're able, come and run a leg with me!
