All finished, bang on schedule, what an achievement
The final stats are:
Total Distance - 850.3 miles - Time taken 28 days 4 hrs and 54 mins - Running
time 171 hrs 51 mins and 43 seconds.
We crossed the line at 2.06pm this afternoon. It was a tie! Although Greg did
cross the line first!! After several phone calls
and texts I can confirm that there are no words that can adequately describe how
we feel. To read the rest

Sorry to disappoint but this is definitely not
a race - but it is a serious challenge - and our progress will be well
worth following. Starting on St Georgeís Day (23 April 2012) we plan to
run 30 miles a day to cover the distance in 29 days; crossing the finish
line, at Landís End, on 21 May.
John and I have run hundreds of miles together
over the years and we are really looking forward to our most challenging
adventure yet. I think this is probably the ultimate way for us to raise
money and publicity for a charity that, for personal reasons, is very
dear to my heart.
To help us we have imported (at no cost to you
the sponsors) all the way from Tasmania, a crazy Australian - Greg
Dwyer, to look after all out needs (as cook, camper van driver,
motivator and masseur) and to keep you entertained via the blog - you
have been warned!
Itís a huge challenge for us but with your
support I feel sure we will make it.
