SHADES - 10 Marathons in 10 Days 9th to 18th May


I've set this thread up so I can report in daily on our journey into the unknown, 10 marathons in 10 days.

Last year the challenge was completed by 7 runners, this year there are 11 starters, 8 men and 3 women, the challenge has not yet been completed by a woman.

Am I ready for this?  NOimage

Off to pack now, leaving to drive from Devon to Cheshire today then onto Brathay in the morning.   Probably won't be back on-line today.

<<waves goodbye>>

    I doubt you could ever be really ready for something like this.  But that doesn't mean you won't do it.  You've got the right attitude, and as long as your body just about holds up, you will be fine.


  • Wow, good luck Shades!
  • Have fun.  Best wishes.
  • Shades-I'll be there running along with you all, for your last of the 10.Im sure the couple of hundred other runners will help you along.

    See you there and all the very best.
