John O'Groats to Land's End - World Record Attempt 2019
For 2019 the opposite way around JOGLE
Having set the LEJOG record in 2006, I plan to attempt to run JOGLE in 2019. In 2006 I had tried to break 12 hours, but went just over 16 hours slower. So after another 12 yeears I hope to break my original plan of 12 days. I have a complete new crew, new route and new strategy in place to attempt this based on the lessons learned from my previous run.
This is not cheap or easy to organise and so far have been offered some help from A Buckler Demolition in Middlesbrough, ultramarathon running store and hydration and recovery drinks from Hellenia, a family run health product company. I am still searching for more sponsorship to help fund this project.
Sponsorship: Although all the money raised by this event will be going to charity (to be confirmed), there are various sponsors that are providing help with the costs of the challenge.
