Bare with me on this, 30 years ago I neet a chap from west Wales who ran 100miles in 24hours and that entitled him to join the 100 miler club. My question is, is that club still going?
I have not heard of it since , or anybody else doing it.
The chap who ran it spent 3 days in bed, his heart rate was so low everyone thought that he was dead [ he was in a army camp at the time ] and a doctor was called who put him on a drip.
After the third day he got up as if nothing had happened. but he was never the same runner again.
I dont think I would put myself through that, just wondered if the club was still going.
This chap also called Roy, died about 5/6 years ago but I always admired for what he did.
Thanks one and all .
Seren nos, to be honest with myself I dont think that I have the apptitude for that distance. Mind you I have done a few 50/40/30 milers over the years.
Helvetica Bold, will look that up, once again thanks.
