This one has been documented in more detail. You see, me and Paul went on quite an adventure – we literally ran around London!
I met Paul during the Country 2 Capital ultra in 2019. We both missed the one important turn on the route and briefly said hello as we caught each other and ensured we tracked back to the correct route.
2 years on and when an opportunity came about to run around London together we go planning. Short story is that we made it. A full loop of the Capital Ring walking route setting off and finishing at Crystal Palace station. We covered 82 miles that day during the Covid-19 Pandemic lockdown (we did it within the restrictions set out by the Government!).
The run was an opportunity for us to find out more about each other and develop a closer friendship. Despite running together many times since, over such a long distance you definitely form a closer bond with someone as you share the ups and downs of the day. This was an adventure we’ll never forget and I thank Paul so much for making it happen!
