Sidmouth Running Club member Ollie Goodchild-Horne has completed the Tommy 10k challenge 2021 for the Royal British Legion Industries. 

The Mighty Green had to run 10k a day for 10 days, an impressive 100k in total, mainly from his home in Budleigh, gaining a PB on his first run.  

Day 3 was a hilly one ran with his dad and fellow MG, Adrian ‘Gripper’ Horne, who undertook this challenge last year and inspired Ollie to sign up. Ollie had the company of friend, Harry Savage on day 6, and day 10 saw him reach his target by running across Exmouth seafront on Remembrance Sunday.  

Ollie was delighted and grateful for all the support and donations. He raised £175, which was over his target and will go towards supporting the RBL’s most venerable veterans, those with disabilities or homeless.   

The MG is giving his legs time to recover, ready to run the Bicton Blister in a couple of weeks’ time!
