John says:

'I believe there is little else to mention other than I will be sporting a very ill-fitting moustache during my run.
If anyone cares to donate to this charity the link is below and within 3 minutes you can be on your way to feeling better about yourself.

A bit about the runner:
I was proudly in School House from 1996 until 2001 played rugby, fives and I swam for the school. Some of the masters may better remember me by my exceedingly strong capabilities at asking a red-herring just before lessons started that could last until the end, enabling me to skip past the part where homework was meant to be handed in.
Currently I’m working in Amsterdam on biofuels and making the world a bit greener, or so we claim.'
