6 Marathons in 6 Days

 

A marathon is a gruelling challenge that takes a huge amount of training, determination and will power to prepare for. Six marathons on consecutive days is almost unspeakable.

 

But for Jason Easy, Katie Ball and Ben Lowe of the SockMine team, this will soon be a reality. Join Ben during one of his training sessions to hear more about the challenge and why they’re doing it:

Each member will run an amazing grand total of 157.2 miles in this challenge. The first five marathons will be running along the Grand Union Canal, which stretches from Birmingham to London. On the 6th and final day, the team will take part in the London Marathon.

 

Determined to cross the finish line on the 23rd of April, they have dedicated their training on speedy recovery in preparation of the big event. You can read more about how Ben and the team trained for this challenge here.
