On Sunday the GSPCA Manager undertook the challenge of running the 13.1 miles which makes up the Guernsey Dairy Milk Run Half Marathon.

Earlier this year the GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne celebrated his 40th year and helped raise funds for the GSPCA instead of cards and gifts.

Steve at the time decided that he had put on a little weight in recent years so made the decision to get fit and run the Guernsey Dairy Milk Run Half Marathon.

You can still sponsor Steve and donate online via -

Since making the decision he is now 4 ½ stone lighter and has been prepared well for the event which took place on Fathers Day Sunday 16th June.

Steve has raised over £600 so far which he will split between the GSPCA and the chosen charities of Mariners’ Lodge No 168.

With over 3000 animals through the doors at the GSPCA and Mariners’ Freemason Lodge No 168 helping many great local good causes Steve is hugely grateful to those that have donated.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “I cannot thank all that have sponsored me and especially those that organised and cheered all of  the runners on at the Guernsey Dairy Milk Run Half Marathon on Sunday.”

“I still can’t quite believe I finished in 1 hour 50 minutes and still felt quite fresh at the end of the Guernsey Dairy Milk Run Half Marathon.”

“It was all aid of the GSPCA where we help thousands of animals and many of the Guernsey community every year and the chosen charities of Mariners’ Lodge No 168 who support many local charities each year.”

“You can still donate via the sponsor form at the GSPCA reception, calling 257261 or online on the page I’ve set up which is and thank you to all that have helped raise over £600 so far, it is hugely appreciated.”

“This fitness bug seems to be catching at the GSPCA as there are 4 of us undertaking the Hellveita triathlon to raise funds for the new GSPCA Wildlife Hospital and to sponsor us or spread the word please visit .”

“For anyone wanting to undertake a sponsored challenge for the GSPCA we can help with sponsor forms, online links, promoting your challenge and best of all help with a GSPCA vest, please just get in touch.”
