This is the Forces March route that 60 of us did over 5 days as 5 marathons, in May. That's a whole lot of hills, wriggly blind bended roads, annoying hip wrenching cambers and a menagary of animals who may try to steal his thunder! Plus inconsiderate speeding drivers. This has to be run in the road, and into the oncoming traffic. He will be doing it during peak holiday season so will have to contend with additional hazards of caravans, camper vans, and a higher volume of drivers holidaying in the gorgeous South of England. Plus tractors, artic trucks ..
He took part in the 2012 Forces March so he knows the route, the dangers and the very difficult terrain that will challenge his body. This is an extreme endurance ultra distance.
He will be running through the night and in the dark! He has to get his fueling, hydration and footing just right, to safe and energised. This is not just a physical challenge but an enormous mental one too. He may have a car to support for health and safety reasons, but he is out there on his own, willing his body and soul to run the distance.
Rob is inspired to help our veterans and raise money for The Veterans Charity. It is also to commemorate 70 years to the day of the legendary march by the 6th Airborne Division in early training for D-Day in 1942 from Ilfracombe, N Devon to Bulford, Wiltshire.
