Chiswick resident Paul Smith has taken on several daunting physical challenges to raise money for Headway, the charity that helps people affected by brain injuries of which Olympian James Cracknell is vice-president.

This weekend he will take on a 100 km Race to the Stones Ultramarathon along the oldest path in the UK. With the forecast for 27 degree heat, Paul knows the going will be tough.

Paul has been involved in a number of events this year which will culminate in a 62-mile ultramarathon in September. His total will be the equivalent of more than 6 marathons with some assault course action also thrown in. So far his results are:

London Marathon (London Marathon ,: 3:14:47; Brutal 10 (  Brutal 10) 42nd;

Lichfield Half Marathon: 36th; 1:29:10.; Tough Mudder ( Toughmudder) : Finished!

The final event will be the   Thames Path Challenge which starts in Putney and passes through Chiswick on 14 September, consisting of 100ks.

Paul is also keeping a blog available here which has his race reports and photos. So far he has raised over £1,000.
