I am a long-distance racing fanatic who follows the sport with as much passion as some others follow more popular sports like soccer and F1.
I am also someone who is socially aware and want to use this platform to raise awareness about social issues. Among them the one that keeps me most concerned is global warming and related environmental issues.
Barns Green Half-Marathon
The Barns Green Half-Marathon. This marathon is special due to being run on some of the most serene and tranquil country roads to be found in the entire UK.
As the name itself suggests, this half-marathon celebrates the greenery of the area and makes people aware of the need to preserve it and treasure it. It is a great way to bring physical activity into the minds of the people along with creating awareness about environmental issues.
