    Dear Sir/Madam,
    my name is Andrew,
    I am a visually impaired athlete(long distance runner)
    who competes in events ranging from 1500m on the track
    up to 21km on the road.
    I also go bushwalking , cycle and swim.
    I am seeking some new challenges and wish to train and
    do some not too technical shorter trail events.
    Do you know of anyone or could you advertise through your
    facebook page for a non elite (I am slowing down ) female
    who could provide transport and be a companion/guide whenever
    I train/ race( I am a decent person – and reside in Croydon>
    Salomon is also supporting me with some gear and I have e-mailed
    Brett Saxon from Trails plus about free entry for both myself and
    female carer/guide.
    Hopefully some kind person will respond enabling me to participate
    in trail running.
    Looking forward to hearing from someone in the near future who
    can support me.
    Thank you for your assistance.
    Yours sincerely
    Andrew Tunne
    PS- pLEASE confirm that you have received my e-mail.
