Marathon Relay of Great Britain

Multi-marathon around Great Britain to start in May

Marathon Relay of Great Britain

This is a unique challenge that will aim to run a relay of marathons around Great Britain in May 2012.

Not only will there be the physical challenge to runners of all abilities but the event will also raise funds and awareness for brain tumour research.

This is a challenge but not a race. Therefore, runners will be running on their own or in small groups, at night or during the heat of the day.

All the while, the runner will be notching up the miles that will try to break the current world record for distance relay running which currently stands at 1,923 miles set by the ‘Gillette Phenomenal Tour’ in Romania in 2009 over the course of 13 days.
