I sat down this morning and had a chat with the current women's RRA Land's End to John O'Groats record holder, Lynne Biddulph.

I also managed to catch up this half term with Dominic Irvine and Charlie MItchell, who broke the Men's Tandem End to End record in 2015 - a record that had stood for 49 years.

I hope Michael - and everyone else - doesn't mind me posting this here but I thought some would like to support Michael's kids in their own challenge.

'My name is Oli Broadwith (age 12). My brother Tom (age 9) and I are setting ourselves the challenge of running 100 kilometres (just over 62 miles or almost 2.5 marathons) in February 2021'

Many thanks for sharing.
What an inspiration. Not taking anything away from her but thanks and admiration to her supporters & family.
Up here in Scotters we'd say she one tough cookie.
2017 Ethiopia.5 weeks.

Lots more in hot countries.
