  4. Well done, hope he does it.
  5. That will be a hell of a good effort if he manages it.
    All the best.
  6. The only Marathon I'm interested in is now called Snickers!
  7. Good luck to him, I managed 3hrs 24mins a few years back......would have been a different story with 40lbs on my back though !
  8. Other way round.

  9. Having only recently completeing my 30, I can say in honesty I wish him the very best, he'll need it. I certainly couldn't do it. I suspect that considering the sort of chap he appears to be , he'll do it!
  10. Wow. Huge respect for even attempting it. Good luck to him.
  11. So he'll knocking out 7 minute miles (ish) with a bergan for 3 hours and 20 minutes?

    Great effort. Hope he smashes it/
  12. Surely that time is impossible???? He's looking at doing a minute a mile quicker then it's ever been done before?

    We'll know in about 20 hours. It is extremely ambitious.

  14. Even for just attemping it, the man has guts. Lets hope he finishes, never mind the time. But he seems to be determined enough. Good luck to him.
  15. Another former 1 Para lad, Pete Digby, doing it lugging an Aga cooker....he's done it before carrying a fridge I think. Good effort
