The Big Run is 10 marathons in 10 days and the aim is to raise awareness and sponsorship for Progeria Family Circle (UK).  This is a debilitating condition that causes the body to age at an accelerated rate and has dominated the young lives of 14-year old Hayley Okines and 13-year old Harry Crowther.
