Walk the Wight 2019
Guy does an Ultra

So. Having done his first marathon Guy has put his feet up, undergone an extensive re-hydration programme and vowed not to even think about doing anything quite so stupid for an unspecified period of time that oscillates between at least 12 months and the rest of his natural.

But wait!

What is this coming over the hill ....

... is it an ultra!!

Yes! You’ve guessed it.

In a rash moment that awaits explanation by over qualified scientist, struggling with such weighty issues as, why don’t arm pit hairs keep growing? what happened to the Mona Lisa’s eyebrows? and nipples for men? Guy has entered an Ultra!

For those of you who are not au fait with endurance athletic speak, an Ultra is any run that is longer than a Marathon, or +26.2 miles.

Less than a month after doing the Paris Marathon, Guy is going to Walk the Wight!

OK. Yes, I know it has the word ‘walk’ in the title, but walking is not compulsory and you can walk a marathon, if you’ve a mind to. Besides, walking is going to take longer, thereby increasing the time and pain factor, making those who do iteven more heroic than the whimps who run +26.2 miles.

However you look at it, an Ultra is an Ultra.

It was his second marathon in a month ... not a lot of people can say they did that!

Legs and knees recovering!

Guy will be run/walking it, largely because it’s hilly, the walking bit makes it sound easy and his knees are still knackered from Paris.

He will be doing this on Sunday 12th May to raise funds for Earl Mountbatten Hospice on the Isle of Wight.

The walk goes all the way to Alum Bay, famous it’s Needles, from Bembridge, famous for it’s ... I’ll get back to you on that one.

It promises spectacular coast views. Which, as any endurance athlete will tell you is code for ‘undulating’, which is code for there are lots of hills, which in turn is code for don’t run it unless you are mad. It goes across the entire width of the Island ... in whatever weather happens to turn up.

Sounds a breeze.

And the distance?

26.5 miles.

OK it’s only just an Ultra but it’s still worth a donation for a good cause ...

Isn’t it?
