Pie-fueled trail runner raising money for hospice

Glossop-based runner Will Mather is taking on Ultra-Trail Snowdonia Challenge this Friday – and he is set to be fueled by chicken balti pies.

The HGV driver got in touch with Wrights Food Group to tell them their pies were behind his success on the trails, after the pastries became his go-to sustenance on endurance runs.

Intrigued by a picture he sent while on a training run in the Welsh mountains, the food manufacturing specialist offered to provide a box of pies to fuel him on his Ultra-Trail Snowdonia Challenge attempt.

Wrights Foods also made a £500 contribution to Will’s fundraising page – he is aiming to raise money for Blythe House Hospice, which cared for his father before he passed away last October.

The grueling Ultra Trail Snowdonia event – which has been completed by fewer than half of its 100 entrants – will see Will scale in excess of 33,000ft over 165km, with his target time set at around 40 hours.

For more information on Will’s Snowdonia attempt, and to donate to Blythe House Hospice, head to his Just Giving page:
