38 marathons in 31 days – can you put Tom up for a night (or two)? | 26 July 2016

July 26, 2016


Tom Hunt hopes to get into the record books – AND to raise funds for The ME Association this autumn. He aims to become the youngest person to run between Land’s End and John o’Groats in just 31 days.

His training is going well and his fundraising is going brilliantly – he has already raised nearly £4000. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Tom-Hunt-Run

But his expedition planning has hit a hitch as the motor home he had hoped to borrow has not materialised. So he urgently needs places to stay along his route.

This would involve meeting Tom at an agreed point (liaising by phone), and giving him a place to stay for the night. His needs are few – a shower or bath, somewhere perhaps to wash his socks, a carb-packed meal and a bed. And then a lift back to where he stopped running the day before.

He is planning on running approximately 30 miles per day, so it may be that someone terribly kind might even be able to have him for 2 consecutive nights.


THIS IS HIS ROUTE – subject to change however due to weather and blisters….
