Today, June 30, 2017, a cohort of adventurous runners and cyclists are setting off from Bosnia and headed for the UK, an astounding 2,000km away. The aim of the challenge, named Run For Love, is to raise £250,000 to fight human trafficking. I’ll be joining them for Stage Two, a 555km 3-day alpine cycle from Zagreb to Munich so head to social media for updates and you’ll meet some of my fellow challengers (Instagram @eXerKyourself)

The donations raised through Run For Love, an endurance duathlon, will support charities that work towards the prevention of future trafficking and help victims of modern day slavery.

 The Home Office estimate that there are 13,000 potential victims of modern day slavery in the UK alone (2013 data).
