With an event like this, there's plenty of organisation to do...

Steve sorted out the backup vehicle, wrote the website, planned the route, researched and emailed dozens of potential sponsors. Julia organised the flights, raised money for Help For Heroes, organised media contacts and accommodation on the route. Chris came up with a poem and a list of his favourite running songs.

Here they are:

The Runner

By Walt Whitman

1819-1892

On a flat road runs the well-train'd runner, 
He is lean and sinewy with muscular legs, 
He is thinly clothed, he leans forward as he runs, 
With lightly closed fists and arms partially rais'd. 


Inspiring stuff, I'm sure you'll agree. 

Chris' Top Ten Trip Hits:

On the Road Again - Canned Heat
Born to Run - The Boss
Ventura Highway - America
Running on Empty - Jackson Brown
Route 66 - Stones
Take it Easy - The Eagles

"Where does he find the time?" I hear you ask.
