On 30 June 2012 John Spinks (right) ran the Genghis Khan Extreme Grasslands Marathon to raise money for KEP. It’s an extreme half-marathon in Inner Mongolia, China where competitors run over 24km of sand trails in the blistering heat, surrounded by wild horses! John not only completed the race but finished 6th out of over 200 competitors with an extremely impressive time of 1:45:26. So far he has raised £749.88 (and counting!) towards central KEP.
