A 100km ultra-marathon in the mountains, followed by the London Marathon a week later...what could go wrong!?
Ultra Tour of Arran AND The London Marathon
I have been lucky enough to secure a ballot entry to the London Marathon this year...and if that wasn't enough I am warming up with a 100km adventure (over 2 days) around the Isle of Arran the weekend beforehand. The two events will total slightly more than 140km (87.5 miles) and involve both road running and trail running, with a handful of mountains thrown in for good measure!

My adventuring partner Edward will be joining me for the Ultra Tour of Arran and I will be linking up with two rugby team-mates (Poo Bear and Willy) for the London Marathon. They are both running with charity places for Phab kids (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/3lads3dads), another great charity!
