Image Gallery: 2021 Tour of the Tap

3rd December 2021


The last fourteen days have seen James McLaughlin travelling across the UK visiting all 12 TAP Centres that Cure Leukaemia funds, as he set himself the challenge of running 14km around each of the Centres.

168 kilometres later (and £25,000 raised) and James can finally put his feet up as we take a look back at some of the best photos from his epic challenge:

There was certainly a sporting theme to a lot of James's runs as he tried to take in as many sports grounds as possible along the way! Here are the gang at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in Nottingham (home to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club)

Southampton legends Matt Le Tissier and Franny Benali were on hand to greet James at St Mary's Stadium in Southampton. 

Hitting the £10,000 mark after leg 2 in Glasgow gave James a major boost for the rest of the week! 

Geoff Hill's family greeted James in London to provide an emotional end to the challenge. Geoff unfortunately lost his battle with leukaemia in September. 

Headline Sponsor of the challenge and good friend of Cure Leukaemia, Q-Solution's Kev Hoskins ran each of the legs at home before travelling into London to run the final two legs with James.  

We had a fantastic welcome from the team in Southampton on the penultimate day of the challenge. 

James was joined at various points of the challenge by members of staff from the Centres and fellow CL family supporters. 

 

It was an emotional end to the challenge as James crossed the finish line and realised he had hit the £25,000 mark! 

The Birmingham leg marked the end of a five consecutive days of 14km runs and allowed James to rest up before his final three runs. 

He certainly received a heroes welcome when completing the Birmingham leg! 

James was met with -2 degrees temperature as he began the Oxford leg of the challenge. 

One man, eleven cities, 12 legs, 168 kilometres ran, £25,000 raised!
