Story

On May 4th 2013, ASD & Si finished Tough Mudder in two hours and a minute. Prior to this ASD was overweight and unfit after breaking his ribs doing judo, and Si was fat and grumpy. We therefore needed a challenge and trained hard for Tough Mudder.

Once that was over, we needed more. We didn't ask for sponsorship as Tough Mudder didn't really seem enough of a challenge to get people to part with their money.

With a bit of training most people could run a marathon. Not everyone can do an Ultramarathon. 100km/62miles/2.3 marathons is a challenge that will take us to our physical and mental limits. Prior to this, neither of us had ever run a competitive race nor ran more than 18 miles in training. It's going to be tough.

The next ten months will involve intense training, knowledge gathering from the experts and the London Marathon as a 'warm-up' run.

Any support is appreciated, we’re bricking it, so please get in touch!
