My next attempt will be in 2019. I will release the date next February after my break from Ultra Running.
The support in 2018 was fantastic and surprising. The community came out and appeared along the route, including Graham arriving at the top of Pen-Y-Ghent with a McDonalds cheese burger, Mike Hartley himself, Alan & Catherine, Des, Bob Smith, Gwynn and ‘Orrible ‘Oward.
A lot of runners wished me well and said that with more notice they would like to part of the attempt.
I will ensure that our full plan for 2019 is presented on my website so you have the chance to keep me company with some banter, and possibly help carry my kit.
The night time sections are tough and I particularly need help with navigational support as well as the company.
The fact that your reading this means that you believe you have the ability and qualities I’m looking for.
What I’m looking for:
Capable individuals who can support me at different stages of the 268 mile route. I’m asking for pacers that can maintain 4.5mph constantly for at least 5hrs across mountainous terrain, potentially in the dark and any conditions the fantastic British weather can throw at us. I’m looking for runners that are self sufficient, can contribute physically by pushing me along when I’m fatigued and boost my moral when I’m “staring into the abyss”. Ideally a real attribute would be pacers with a keen knowledge of the Pennine Way route who I could utilise for the night sections of the route.
If you are able to meet the majority of the above criteria then this is your opportunity to be part of “Ultra Endurance Running History “.
Fill out the form and I’ll contact you ASAP to discuss this fantastic opportunity.
