Blog and Fundraising

Post by BbSean » Thu Jan 24, 2019 10:58 pm

Some of you would remember me from Back in the days when we had COD4 and COD5 servers.

I fell away from gaming due to other commitments and getting into running in a big way.

As a few of you know I lost my wife to cancer last year.

So in December this year I am flying to Antarctica to take part in the Antarctic Ice Marathon.

I am paying for the entire trip from my own pocket and raising funds for charity.

I am also writing a blog back dated till September 2016 and running till December 2017 where it will end.

I will also be posting about my training along the way and races I enter.

My blog can be found here:

Oh mate, I didn't know that - I'm so sorry for your loss. Good luck with your trip.

Sorry to hear that, cancer is a sod. Your trip will be an awesome one. Had the opportunity to go on a mountaineering trip to Antarctica in 2012 but couldn't do the 2 qualifying climbs as I was deployed on operations! The guys that went had an amazing time.

Excellent film featuring Andy Richardson as he prepares and takes part in the 2013 Antarctic Ice Marathon.... what have I signed up to 🙈

If you don’t feel like watching the full film, watch from 32 minutes onwards
