We Did It! JAPES was launched at the Great Scottish Run. And that's only the first of many JAPES projects.
The Pilots, Crew and Runners had a wonderful day on the half marathon course around Glasgow. The weather was fantastic, the crowds were amazing and the whole experience was uplifiting for everyone.
JAPES thanks all of you who made it happen - from Clark (the schoolboy who started the Crowdfunding ball rolling with a donation of £1.30) through to all those involved in already projecting our inclusive ideal far into the future. What a journey we are on.

On Saturday 3rd September 2016, JAPES took possession of its (first) Joelette. This is the sight that greeted us when we arrived at the Bendrigg Trust in Cumbria to collect it. Thrilled!


1st & 2nd October 2016. Our official Launch Weekend will see JAPES' Joelette in action for the first time on the Great Scottish Run. We can't wait.

Looking ahead to 2017, JAPES will once again be visiting Glasgow on Fathers' Day, Sunday 18th June, 2017.

The John Muir Way Challenge for Japes - 5 Marathons in 5 Days - was completed on 8th August and 138 miles were logged.


The route spans 134 miles but there were two navigation incidents!


Whilst the JMW Challenge is finished, the journey is really just beginning
