The 120 marathon man challenge
Today, 17th March after 22 months planning we have had to make a decision about the 120 marathons, and with regret we have decided to postpone our start date. We have not taken the decision lightly but given the current climate and the guidance on non essential travel, especially to Europe, and considering our own family needs, we are going to postpone for 3 months. We will review our amended start date of 13th June in line with the ongoing guidance as necessary.
Thank you for all your support and understanding.
This is a self funded challenge trek of 120 marathon distances of 26.5 miles per day for 120 consecutive days, starting on the 21st march 2020 and finishing on the 18th July 2020.
The 120 marathons will cover 8 countries, 3 isles covering a distance of 3180 miles, or to put that into context will be the equivalent of walking from Leeds to New York City.
The 120 marathons will see us taking in the 48 english counties and well as the marathons in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal as well as the isles of Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man as well as a marathon that has to be completed on a ferry during a 24 hour sailing.
