3 People, Each Running A Marathon+ Everyday... (Starts 24th April 2011)
Myself, and two other forumites (Njord and Caz Hall from Sub3) will on the 24th April embarking on insanity and running from Lands End To John O'Groats in 13 days, that's 39 marathons in total, and each will run 340+ miles and a marathon each per day... tough? DAMN RIGHT.
Anyhow, I've created a website... just to record our challenge which gives people the oportunity to follow us on the journey using Twitter/Facebook and eBlogger... it'd be fantastic if anyone would follow and add their support. We're also running for two charities as well, so if anyone is feeling generous, please feel free. link is below:
39 Marathons In 13 Days... LeJog
All we've got to update is the exact course GPX files to show the exact courses we're taking for each day... this will hopefully be done by 8th April latest... so, please, if you happen to live anywhere near the course and can pop out for support, please feel free. We'll be starting around 8am EVERY morning... anyhow more details to come on the site.
We'll be publishing the routes this week on the website, so if anyone wants to join up for a jog for some of the miles, that would be fantastic... we'll need the support believe m.
Jakesy - believe it or not, we ran a few feet from eachother in Liverpool Half... I'm not quite what I was
Pug, was you incognito, you should`ve given me a nudge, i turned the Lpool half into a 20 mile training run, did 5 miles then my mara pace (6:30) for the race, finished in 1;24;10 then 2 miles to finish off.I am hopefully aiming for a 2;50 at Edinburgh.
Anyway, I hope you`re running well, I know Njord and Caz are.I ran the last 15 miles of the Liverpool mara double on new years day with Njord, he did 3:01 on his 2nd mara in 2 days.I think he was just trying to get away from me cos i was chewing his ear off,absolutely amazing running by both of them tho
good luck with the run
Good luck guys.
How will you be supported along the way -support crew, places to stay over night etc?

Hi sorry for late reply... we've been busy of late hahaha. Right, well with four days to go until the start, it's all getting exciting AND nervy at the moment...
To answer your question for support... basically, we're supporting ourselves... three of us in one car... we've booked all B&B's/Hostels/Staying with friends for the over night jobbies... but as in support... each of us will have a small bum bag with essentials... sweets, drink, phone, MP3 player... map etc... each of us will have a Garmin as to not get lost although without a doubt, this will happen for deffo... hahaha...
The site is all up now, with all the course now plotted...

You'll see exactly where we're going now on the site... it's got the actual KML/TCX files that we'll be using... you can view them on Google Earth. Don't expect much conversation mate, we'll probably be on our arses by that point...
I wish I was with you. All the best.
Good luck. Might see you on 5th May if you are still on schedule, and the gas man appears on time to service the boiler.
