My son will run 86.2km today and into the night
See the whole of his team here..
They are collectively hoping to raise £104k for Macmillan Cancer Support Nurses, and have raised over £90k so far.
They have all completed three gruelling runs of over 30 km each, been blown to bits by a 2 hour hurricane during the night, scaled mountains, skidded down sand dunes – the adventure of a lifetime.
I shall be glued to the GPS tracking and live updates on the website, and the outstanding photographic coverage – and crocheting like mad!!!
Ralph at the finish on Day 2 after 7hours 13minutes and 54 seconds covering 39km
Looking amazingly good!
