In April 2017 I had planned to run the length of the Cotswold Way National Trail, 170km, solo – no bling, just challenge and satisfaction.
However, while running the Snowdon marathon a few weeks ago, Emma #Run500 “called me out” for only going one way (point to point), clearly this was a set-up to go further, and obviously I fell for it! She had a point, after all! So, not content with running 170km, I will also cycle from Gloucester docks to the start of the Cotswold Way, running its full length, then cycling to Sharpness docks, before kayaking back to the Start / Finish at Gloucester docks. Over 300 kilometers in total, in under 48 hours.
- Cycle – Gloucester-Chipping Campden 50km
- Run – Cotswold Way 170 km
- Cycle – Bath-Sharpness 55 km
- Kayak – Sharpness-Gloucester 16km
301km in 48hrs
And then it’s time to PARTY (and sleep)!
While training for the challenge I will be raising money to support the great work that The Children’s Society do, so stand-by for some fundraising details!
