Running Stormtrooper Spreading Smiles

750 501 Viv Levene

On Sunday 20 December, Jez Allinson, aka the Running Stormtrooper, has completed his 2020 challenge of running 1,000 miles and fundraising for Spread a Smile and Make a Wish, all whilst dressed in full Stormtrooper armour.

Despite it not being the finish he’d planned (to run from Elstree Studios to Pinewood Studies), due to the new covid restrictions, Jez ran the last 18 miles of his 2020 challenge around his RAF base, RAF Benson.

Thank you so much to Jez for this amazing achievement which will help spread smiles to seriously ill children and teenagers.
