Our hardcore 7 marathons in 7 days is about to start.

offas-dyke-037Richard and I are busying ourselves with final preparations, weather reports, admin and food lists.  It’s surprising just how much we have to consider alongside the training to put ourselves in the best position to complete this challenge.
 .
We’ve had FANTASTIC support so far, thank you so much for your sponsorship, advice and other support to help make this happen. We’ve just broken through the £2000 mark on our way to the next milestone.
 .
A number of friends and family are dropping by to offer moral support and even thrash along with us over the week.  You are most welcome to join us if you feel you’d like to be there.
 .
We will be taking all of our own gear and food with us, carrying around 15 kilos each.
 .
On Saturday morning we will be releasing the details of our tracking website in order that people can follow along with us and find us should we reach a perilous moment!
 .
Our itinerary is below, now let’s just get on and do this!  Roll on Prestatyn on the 11th.
 .
 Can you support us and our two charities?
