Airedale’s Mike is running 100 miles

Mike Dunning: running 1
Mike Dunning: “Raising the money is harder than the running”

UK: Mike Dunning of air conditioning manufacturer Airedale is running 100 miles this year in aid of charity.

Mike, a wiring loom operator for the Leeds-based company, was spurred on to raise money for Bowel & Cancer Research having seen two of his colleagues die from the disease.

He is now more than half-way through his year-long objective of raising £1,000 for Bowel & Cancer Research by running more than 100 miles.

The Burnley 10k later this month will mark the start of his training for the grand finale which will see the 41-year old run the York marathon this October. So far he has completed four 10k races and three half marathons including the Great North Run. In his last race, the Leeds half marathon, Mike achieved a further personal best of 1 hour 48 mins and 29 seconds, coming within the top quartile of runners.

As part of his training, he cycles the 34 miles to and from work each day, completing the journey in under an hour and often arriving home before a colleague travelling the same route by car.

When asked what he found the biggest challenge, Mike said: “It’s harder raising the money than it is doing the running but I’m very grateful to everyone for their support so far.”
