‘A Million Metres’ Challenge Update

On a fine sunny morning today (14/4/21) Phil Westren met up with Jamie Thomson and Matt Evans as they started their daily 7km runs.

As previously announced Cornish Pirates’ Team Manager Matt and Supasport SW C.I.C.’s Managing Director Jamie Thomson are two of six participants taking part in an impressive ‘A Million Metres’ challenge.

Supasport SW C.I.C. in partnership with the Cornish Pirates and Truro City FC have organised this exciting fundraising campaign on behalf and in partnership with Sport Cornwall Foundation.

The other four runners are Cornish Pirates’ Assistant Coach Matt Jess, Truro City FC’s player and Assistant Manager Stewart Yetton, plus Director Dan Stidwell and Lead Coach Martyn Webster from Supasport SW C.I.C.

Their aim is to run a combined 1,000,000 metres over the course of this month, with each having to run seven kilometres every day for 30 days consecutively to achieve their target. This will result in each of them completing a distance of 210,000 metres which is the equivalent of running from Truro to Bristol or running nearly five marathons each in one month.

The participants are doing this not only to raise the profile of and benefit Sport Cornwall but to also secure funds that can then be used to deliver free sporting services to the people of Cornwall.

If you can, please give support by making a donation, whether individual or corporate. These donations will enable more people; families, adults and children across Cornwall to access sport or exercise and experience the benefits of an active lifestyle.

To make a donation the Just Giving link is as follows:
