Cristian Colas will be running the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 9th April. Our head coach will be raising money for Football Beyond Borders.

At the time of writing this, Cristian has raised an impressive £303.43. His target is £500. If you’d like to donate to this amazing cause you can below. Cristian is also providing updates on his progress. It’s well worth keeping an eye on!

Would you like to get to know more about Cristian? Our DoF, Guillem Balague, recently sat down with him for a chat after a training session. Not only does our head coach talk about life at Biggleswade United but he talks about his love for running….or maybe not! You can see the interview in full here:

A word from Cristian Colas:


Still today, I don’t know why I accepted the challenge, but I don’t regret it. I’m preparing myself to carry out the most difficult physical challenge of my life, finishing 42 kilometers with 195 meters (26 miles & 385 yards). And you know why? Because I’ve never run and I don’t like to run. Even today after one month training. It’s being very funny and very tough at the same time.

It will be held on April 9th at the Brighton Marathon and thanks to my friends of Football Beyond Borders. They convinced me to do it and it will be a pleasure to run for them. All donations will go to them therefore  every time you donate and in appreciation to it, your name or the quote that you want will be printed on my t-shirt with which I will run that day.

Thanks for all your attention and taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Don’t hesitate to contact me for any doubts you would have. =)
