On 27th April 2017, Simon will attempt to run 100 miles non-stop from New York to the Rocky Steps, Philadelphia. That’s approx 4 continuous marathons, non-stop, no sleep, thru the dead of the night. It’s not an organised race. It’s just Simon running solo with a small team supporting with food/water and using google maps for directions!! Estimated time to complete it: 30-36 hours non-stop run/walk forward motion.
WHY DO THIS:
It all began in January 2013... with a blog called “Simon’s Rocky Road”. It described a journey which began with the idea of running 100 miles non-stop from New York to The Rocky Steps in Philadelphia for my brother's 40th birthday. It described the training/diet, and it travelled thru the ups & the downs of what it would take for one over-weight amateur runner, who had never even ran a half-marathon before, to achieve his ambition in 3 months.
The blog also gave an insight into living with mental health issues:
