Hey Everyone,

On 25th November 2012, I will be running the Great Ethiopian Run, a 10k run in Addis Ababa in aid of Self Help Africa.

The Great Ethiopian Run is Africa’s biggest running event. The race attracts tens of thousands of people to historic Addis Ababa each year, and raises thousands of euro worth of fundraising support for many different charities. Over 30,000 people are expected to participate.

Self Help Africa is a very worthy cause and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for this charity. I have created a fundraising page on

On it you can read a few words about the event that I am doing and the charity that I have chosen to support.

You can sponsor me via credit or debit card.

Rest assured that your transaction on the website is very secure.

You will automatically receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support, and acknowledging the amount of your donation. Any donation you can make, no matter how small, will be hugely appreciated!

Many thanks in advance for your support,

Sean Ryan

Update Dec 2012: I completed the run in Addis Ababa in 1 hour and 20 minutes. A good bit off my usual time, but this race was like no other. Approx. 37,000 people took part and this made sure there were a good few standstill bottlenecks. Also, it was like one big party, stopping at a few places to dance with locals, get pictures taken and soak up the party atmosphere..
