Ian has been aware of the Charity through GWS for many years, and thought it would be a great time to raise awareness and help fund research for the prevention of blindness.
The race is taking place on the 11th of May 2014 and he's been training since the beginning of the year.
His favourite app for tracking his training is Runtastic, a general favourite amongst our team's runners because of its usability, clean design and integrated GPS system - plus, it's available on Android and iOS.
Ian would be very grateful for any encouragement and further donations - here is a link to his Just Giving Page!
Also, if any tech people have any other recommended apps or wise words of training support tweet GWS and we can pass them on.
