A lifelong Wycombe Wanderers fan ran 100 miles - the equivalent of almost four marathons - in seven days to raise awareness for Tommy’s Charity.

Ross Jeavons completed the challenge on October 15 at Adams Park where he was greeted with cheers and a round of applause from members of staff at the club.

Tommy’s Charity supports research into miscarriage, stillbirth, and premature birth, whilst providing pregnancy health information to parents.

He decided to do the run after he and his wife, Katie, suffered four continuous miscarriages in 2019, but in July this year, they welcomed their son Callum into the world.

After the event, the runner said: “I’m really proud that I managed to do it.

“We definitely managed to do it together, it was a team effort with my wife who came up with the idea of raising money for Tommy’s, which is an amazing charity.

“In 2019 my wife and I suffered four miscarriages, four consecutive losses in pregnancy.

“Obviously, it was a really traumatic time for us.

“I’ve said a few times this week speaking to various different people, it’s just not the days and the actual losses themselves.

“It’s everything that surrounds it, it’s the anxiety, it’s the struggles with mental health, it’s the constantly looking for answers and we were one of the lucky ones in that we found our answers and we had a baby boy Callum this year in July.

“But we always knew in the back of our minds that we were still scarred from the experience and people still going through what we went through in looking for answers so we wanted to raise awareness and raise money.”

The runner was supposed to compete in this year’s London Marathon but after the event was cancelled twice Ross wanted to do something more imaginative to raise awareness.

He continued: “I’m a Wycombe fan and I always have been.
