Statement from Dave Stevens 13th May 2018
Good morning to all the awesome people following my 268 Pennine Way Fkt Attempt
Last night approaching High Cup Nick, the weather was so bad as I was running across that it became too dangerous to continue as both myself and my pacer were feeling early stages of hypothermia.
I was becoming increasingly concerned that I wasn’t able to make a logical or safe decision so had to abandon the attempt on the grounds of safety.
Although initially gutted , I take great comfort in knowing that I can go the distance and on this occasion it was circumstances beyond my control that ended this attempt.
But this record ain’t going anywhere and I’ll be back next year to do it all again with my epic crew and sponsors.
I raced to 160 miles and have to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported and answered the call for pacers and support.
Thank you guys.
