• If you are a regular of the show, or a fan of The Vintage Rebellion you may be familiar with the incredible work by Jez Allinson running for charity dressed in Stormtrooper Armour. In the last 2 years, Jes has raised over £18,500 for charity through the punishing events he puts himself through.This year, the third and final challenge, Jez will run 100km in one day dressed as a Stromtrooper!!!

However, you too can also take part, as Jez has created a series of Virtual Runs from 1 mile to 100km. You can meet Jez both Saturday and Sunday and learn more about his incredible work and how you can take part too.
