Joe Farley, 24, is a Year 2 teacher in Solihull. This year will be Joe’s first Half Marathon. Joe is pretty sporty – he’s a football coach, attends British Military Fitness classes, and has run the Major Series 10K twice. But running 13.1 miles on road may be a bit of a shock to somebody more used to mud, rivers and water slides.
Joe is supporting Edward’s Trust – not just because he’s a great, charitable person (though of course he is), but because he’s a pretty good friend too! Joe has known our fundraiser Laura for over 20 years, and their moms are also best friends. Of course, as a teacher Joe also knows that Edward’s Trust is an invaluable service for children facing many people’s worst nightmare, so he was more than happy to help support the service.
The ever-popular teacher should have plenty of support from all of his students, fellow BMF-ers, and of course his and Laura’s families. He is also expecting to be bought a pint per mile (not all in one go, of course!) as an extra bonus on top of the pride at finishing! If it helps, I’m sure we could even find him some mud.
