1500 Miles of Get to Running

Putting something back into the sport (Read 336 times)

    I had the great pleasure of being a support runner, often called "A Mule" here in the UK, for a very accomplished runner friend of mine who had set his year's challenge to run 4 marathons in 24 hours! My job was to be his Mule and carry some of his kit for 2 legs of 26.2 miles each.

     

    David ran 3 legs of the London Marathon and it was my job to get him back to the start by 9.00am, in true ultra style we paced it almost perfectly when we arrived at the start again at 9.02 am.  Here is a flavour of the night's run

     

    4 in 24 hours

     

    If you ever get the chance to Mule it is a brilliant job and I personally got a lot from it

        That is awesome!

          Oh no, that is way more than just slightly crazy.......Big grin

           

          Running is stupid

              I may have this chance next year.  It's still in the works though.  I have to first of all, survive my first ultra this October...and decide.   If this comes about, I will keep you in mind for the questions I know I'll have!   Smile
