A tough run by any measure. 170 miles along the South West Coast Path delivering up over 25,000ft of elevation gain, rough single track, deep river valleys and challenging climbs.
Starting at Westward Ho! on the north Devon coast and tracking along both the north Devon and Cornwall coastlines until the finish at the iconic sign at Land's End and a cream tea (actually 2 cream teas) at the Land's End hotel.
This was a solo run I designed myself through some of the West Countries most stunning landscapes.

The Alzheimers Society
The people I met. At every turn there were so many amazing people who cheered me on, who stopped to chat and who supported the fundraising.
A 50K ultra on a treadmill in the middle of a busy shopping centre. Who came up with that idea? Oh that would be me!
The idea dreamt up during a treadmill session at the gym which very quickly grew legs. It was a day full of high energy, incredible shoppers who stopped to engage and those that choose to run a mile of two alongside me on a second treadmill I had there.
Over and Above - The Fern Centre (Barnstaple)
The Oddballs Foundation
That this may have been a first, did have a quick Google search and not seen it done before. And that this is definitely not the last you have seen of me, the treadmill, a 50K and a public place. Watch this space.
