Stephen Burt Facing Gruelling Challenge to Raise Much Needed Funds for Homeless Dogs

Posted on May 31, 2017

Just For Dogs Dog Blog - Stephen Burt Facing Gruelling Challenge

10 years ago Stephen Burt adopted a wonderful little SBT, from JFD, called Billy. As a show of support and to help us towards our new build rescue centre Stephen is hoping to raise £1,000 in a most gruelling way by taking part in the Lakes Sky Ultra!!!

If like me, until I spoke to Stephen, you don’t know what this race is about then read this excerpt taken from the Lakes Sky Ultra website:

‘Lakes Sky Ultra is one of the spiciest races in the country. 56km of Lakeland paths, trails and tussock, 4500m of vertical grind, grade III scrambles, and knife edge arêtes – this race has it all. It is not for the faint hearted, and racers will need to be competent on steep rock scrambling sections. It is extreme. It is gnarly. It is hardcore. It is awesome’.

I think you will agree that Stephen will earn every single penny he manages to raise, so if you can spare a donation to help Stephen on his way then please visit his JustGiving funding page here.

Thank you to everyone in advance.
