Tomorrow, Friday, the 27th May, at 8am, I shall set off from Victoria Dock in Hull in an attempt to run two hundred Miles, yes two hundred actual miles, the distance from my cool little Personal Training gym in North Ferriby to Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland, or if going south all the way to Glastonbury.
It’s seven Marathons and a half marathon plus a little more back-to-back. It’s sixty-four park runs.
It’s a long bloody way is what it is.
Intermixed in this jolly long fun run is four thousand, nine hundred and forty metres of ascent, which is five times the height of England’s tallest mountain Scafell Pike.
Not that my route will take me out of this North Yorkshire paradise, I’ll be taking the Wolds way from Hull to run to Filey, at which point I’ll join the Cleveland way and follow the cliff tops to Saltburn before turning inland all the way to Helmsley.
I’ve put in a lot of training hours, spent time researching good running technique, and I’ve also been covering old ground with nutrition, cutting out alcohol, decreasing my calories and losing five kilograms in the past eight weeks.
I have no injuries, I am familiar with the route, there are a total of five amazing people who have volunteered to be my support crew and drive around to various locations to meet my diva demands for fluids and calories.
Now I just need to enjoy the show, and I hope you will too, you can follow me live on the following link, It’ll take me at least forty eight hours, and that’s if things go very well, so don’t stay up too late!.
If you do check in from time to time, and you are entertained by my real time suffering, I hope you might consider donating to the two amazing charities I’ll be running for, Humber Rescue and the Royal Marines Charity.
Both of these organizations help save lives, and I am fortunate to be involved and see the amazing work they do.
If all goes well, I’ll write up a race report, if not I’ll drown my sorrows, then write up a race report.
You can also check in on the action throughout the weekend by viewing the live videos uploaded to my Facebook event page
I sincerely wish you a great weekend, please wish my fellow adventurers and I good luck and take a moment over this weekend to see how we are all getting on.
Should I be successful in completing this challenge, could somebody please restrain me before I go ahead and decide to enter something much Longer!
