Run Kenya - An Amazing Challenge for a Great Cause
The competition winner is chosen by public vote over the Internet, but the votes finish TOMORROW TUESDAY 22nd June.
If you think you might like to vote for Chris and the Kenyan Street Children charity then please click on the Great Britons link which has information about his challenge:
Then click on "Chris Rhys Howarth" and then on "Vote Now"
You must however sign up first. This is a check that people don't vote more than once. It only takes a minute. You won't get spam e-mails from British Airways!
Follow the instructions after clicking "Sign up now". When you click "Go", it takes you back to Chris's profile. You have to click on "Vote Now" again!
You should then get a confirmation page that asks if you are voting for the right person. YOU MUST CLICK ON THIS PAGE to actually register your vote. It will then say "Done".
If you could spend a few minutes reading what a great project Chris is raising money for, and then click on the British Airways website and vote it would be very much appreciated.
Your vote could really make a difference to the expenses for the run, as well as raising the publicity for the charity.
Thanks for taking the time to read the above.
PS Chris wrote a race report about his Jungle Marathon experience. Here is a link to his report from the 2004 Jungle Marathon, which is fascinating reading, especially if you are thinking of doing the race:

PPS I will be back to my usual mutterings hopefully later this week, although with watching New Zealand do so well at the Football World Cup, I don't seem to have enough hours in the day!
PPPS Well done to everyone that finished the West Highland Way. This race is definitely on my 'to do' list as it looks such a great event.
