This challenge is only possible thanks to a growing list of individuals and organisations. I wanted a permanent record of thanks to them, so here they are….
University of Cumbria Sports Rehabilitation student Martyna Vin
And of course, while last, but certainly not least…
My amazing partner
For his never-ending motivation, reassurance, frustration, support , route research, and endless hours on a bike chivvying me on and carrying my water etc. And of course, for eventually running parts of the challenge, cycling alongside me at others and then having to take on the Great North Run for the first time at the end.
For her food, her healthy snacks, for reading the running nutrition books I bought and failed to read, her optimism and for eventually driving the route!
