I wouldn't have thought running 53 marathons in 53 days was much of an adventure. If the event was him sitting on a beach for 53 days in Mauritius, I'd have more to say about it. If the OP was planning to enrich him or herself with all or part of the money, that would be a problem too. People seem to think charitable endeavour doesn't exist in the real world. It does, so it has to pay for some things. Tough.
Eh, looking at the OP avatar there's not much confusion as to "him or herself" I would suggest! (she is also goinf for the female consecutive marathon too...)
I guess asking the fastest athlete ever, used to dominating both the athletes and the lime-light at the Olympics and who trains in the Jamaican sunshine what he thinks of the Commonwealth Games as he's waiting for a taxi in the rain in Glasgow is never going to elicit a great response!
thanks bainspj, but (un?)fortunately I'm not running Borrowdale this weekend...(wish I was mind!)
RS78 - I'd agree if Marigold were taking on a Lakeland classic, but I seriously reckon he could do some real damage on something as runnable as the Y3P. The difficulty is not entirely dissimilar to his Purbeck exploits - just the hills are a bit longer! OK, maybe not quite a shoe-in against Ricky or Jebby, but I still reckon he'd give 'em a darn good run for their money!
