130 mile leeds to liverpool canal challenge

yesterday i started my leeds to liverpool canal challenge. Running 130 miles from liverpool to leeds in 5 or less segments. each segment is at least 26 miles. I will be running 2 segments in the first week and then one a week after that. So the dates i will be running are 1st, 5th, 10th, 17th, and the 24th April. I am doing this not only for my personal achievement but for derian house childrens hospice based in chorley, lancashire.
