Tim Rouen and Thomas Tubridy swapped their kit bags for running shoes on Wednesday (23 February), setting off on a 31-mile fundraising dash to ‘outrun’ the average distance covered by an ambulance during a 12 hour shift.
Daren joined London Ambulance Service (LAS) Chief Executive Daniel Elkeles and ran the first two miles with Tim and Tom.
Daren said: “I really enjoyed doing my little bit for the challenge, supporting everybody and meeting the staff at LAS. Well done to Tim and Thomas for your huge achievement which will no doubt support the work of ambulance crews and staff across the Capital.”
Participants of the Outrun an Ambulance challenge have the choice of running, cycling or swimming to cover the distance an ambulance completes on an average shift. They can spread their activity over a period of time, but Tim and Tom chose to complete it in one go – meaning they ran further than a marathon in just one day!
