Ultra Marathon to get things going
2016's first event saw Lucas takes on his first ever Ultra Marathon - London to Brighton on Saturday 28 May.  An Ultra Marathon is anything over the 26.2 marathon distance.  In this case, 100km or just over 62 miles. (It is not a very direct route!).  Read all about the adventure at London2Brighton and more pictures in the Gallery or on Facebook.

Swimming and Cycling
Lucas was in the pool and on the bike during July - many thanks to Total Fitness, Willerby, Kingston upon Hull. For hosting the 5k Swim and to Olly for his support in the water and to  Pam Atkins and Katy Featherstone for lap counting and moral support..

You can also see how the Pru London-Surrey 100 went with Gordy.

As ever, 2016’s events supported a charity and this year Lucas returned to supporting Cystic Fibrosis Trust, whom he supported in 2011-2012.  Read more about the Griffin's - Tess and Zac both have CF and Lucas spent a weekend with them in 2011 to understand it more.   You can pledge at the virginmoneygiving page at the foot of this page.

and more running...
Lucas has run four half marathons and two Marathons in 2016 . In addition, he took a lead on the visit of Ben Smith of the 401 Challenge on 8-9 August, when Ben visited Kingston upon Hull to run his 343rd and 344th marathons.  Ben ran 401 marathons in as many days to raise awareness of bullying and two anti-bullying charities - Stonewall and Kidscape.  Check out www.the401challenge.co.uk
