Mission accomplished :-)
Now that I've done a marathon I need to find another running challenge that people find worthy enough to keep sponsoring me :-)
I bring you the Ultra 1 in 1, a 50km race that I've booked for 25th March 2023
Yes it's a play on Kevin Sinfield's amazing 7 in 7 ultra marathons from Edinburgh to Manchester. Not quite up there but we all have to start somewhere!
I'm officially booked on, eek!!
Because what I've been through I've opted for another loop event so that my wife and kids can keep an eye on me and if they feel relaxed then I can run relaxed.
The Ultra Loop is an inclusive and flexible ultramarathon event, with an ultimate finishing distance of 50km. The mixed-terrain course combines roads and trails around a 5km loop. With 8 hours to complete the event, you are welcome to choose the distance you would like to run, from one to ten loops. No matter how many loops you run, you receive a finishing time and medal
The event takes place at the very popular Heaton Park in Manchester, UK. The 5km looped route combines road and woodland trail with some rolling hills. The route allows you to experience Heaton Park in all its expanse and beauty as you run by Boating Lake and Heaton Hall and explore the trails and streams of the woodland
