25–26 Jan 2025 246 days to go! #RunShow

Graham McKenna

I’m an ultra runner and coach. I’m the Co owner of ‘start running stay running’.
I’m an ambassador for Open Mental Health, an initiative in Somerset that is trying to become a one stop shop with an ethos of “no wrong door” Along side that I am an “Expert by Experience Leader” and work alongside Stepladder our local men’s mental health charity. EbEs work alongside many of the health services within the southwest. They employ EbEs to find out if initiatives actually work for users.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realise that I no longer possess the fitness, stamina or stupidity of youth. To achieve  the goals I now set myself, I too have to train just as hard as everyone else.  As long as my body is fit and my mind is able, I’ll continue to push my boundaries. I still have a few “bucket list” challenges that I’d love to do and as ever I’ll most likely do them for charity; helping others in the process.
