This entry was posted in News and tagged , , , , on by .

45 year-old Burnley fan and ultra-marathon runner Scott Cunliffe has spent the whole 2018/19 Premier League season running to every away game – and he intends to run from Turf Moor to all 19 Burnley FC away game locations before the end of the season.

Burnley FC in the Community

Scott’s RunAway challenge has already raised more than £16,200 for local charity Burnley FC in the Community, and has so far seen him complete 16 runs covering an incredible 2550 miles. His 17th leg is sponsored by DRN, and will take him from Burnley to AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium.

To cover the huge distance in time for the game, Scott set off on Thursday March 28th and will run for a total of 10 days, racking up more than 250 miles in total when he arrives on the 6th of April.

DRN’s Sponsorship

DRN’s support and sponsorship on this 17th leg of his challenge will cover Scott’s accommodation and food along the route to Bournemouth. This will keep him focused on the road ahead so he can continue raising money for his chosen charities – Burnley FC in the Community and the charitable foundations of the other 19 Premier League clubs he’ll be visiting.


Donations to support Scott’s chosen charities can be made on The RunAway Challenge Just Giving page:  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/therunawaychallenge

Director of DRN David Lawson said:

“Scott is doing something amazing for a well-loved local charity and we are extremely happy to be able to support him on his journey. Scott and I have known each other since we went to Park Hill school together, and it is brilliant to see how much of his challenge he has achieved (smashed?) so far. Good luck from everyone at DRN!”
