January 2018

Happy New Year! My year will start with the first of three world record attempts planned this year. Starting at 11am on 8th January (finishing on 17th January) in the Olympia Building at Teesside University you are all welcome to come and visit me running 10 consecutive marathons in 10 days on a treadmill. A bit warmer than outside at present, having run several cold and icy parkruns over the festive period. I managed to run Clumber parkrun (Worksop) the Saturday before Christmas, Castles parkrun (Bishops Stortford) on Christmas day, Albert parkrun (Middlesbrough) the Saturday after Christmas, Brighouse parkrun and Huddersfield parkrun on New Year’s day and finally Bramley parkrun (Leeds) for 6th January. I did of course do a rather muddy fell race where I live, the Guisborough woods event on 27th December.

I have been training regularly at Teesside University on the h/p/cosmos machine that will be used for the attempt. All witnesses are in place and I am fully supported by staff and students from the University for the physiology testing that will take place. Sports therapy students (Leah Gibbs and Kevin Gamblin) have kindly offered some sports massage too between their revision and exams. Bill as always on treadmill events, cannot be part of the crew and will be at work!

There will probably be daily updates from me on facebook and twitter, not putting anything on this website until after the event. I am supporting a great cause for this one after meeting the trustees of New Hope Uganda, so please help make this world record attempt worthwhile by donating (link below). Many thanks.
