Milton Keynes podcaster running 100 consecutive 10km's for charity

‘The Stress Sessions’ mental health podcaster, Luke Clark, from Buckinghamshire, is challenging himself to run 100 consecutive 10km's - the equivalent of running from Penzance to Dundee.

In total, Luke will be running 1,000 kilometres, and is aiming to raise £1,000 for CALM, who help to prevent male suicide – which takes the lives of 125 people in the UK every week – and Survivors UK, who supports men who have been affected by rape or sexual abuse. Both charities have helped Luke in his mental health battles over the past couple of years.

The podcaster, originally from Kent, has been breaking down the stigmas of mental illness in the form of a series of honest conversations ranging from anxiety and depression to eating disorders and grief, has hosted the likes of blogger Perez Hilton, singer and actor, Suzanne Shaw, DJ and presenter Pat Sharp, ‘This Country’s’ Paul Cooper (father of Daisy-May and Charlie Cooper), 90’s Irish band ‘B*Witched’, Welsh 'Bake Off' star Michelle Evans-Fecci, and former athlete Iwan Thomas MBE on ‘The Stress Sessions’ podcast.

Luke’s 100th and final 10km run will take place on Saturday 10 September, he’s inviting anyone who would like to support either of the two charities to join him on the day to run, walk or jog around a course in Central London.

He said: “After starting The Stress Sessions podcast and @StressSessions Instagram page a few years ago to share my struggles of living with anxiety and depression, I wanted to give myself a big challenge – and what better way than to run 100 10km's in a row!

“Running is one of my coping mechanisms and an outlet for my mental illnesses, and by running the 1,000 kilometres, I want to prove that you can live with a mental illness and still achieve something that seems impossible. And that’s why I’d like to get as many people involved in running my final 10km as possible – whether you want to walk, jog or run – it’s an achievable goal.”
