Running a long way...

For most, this seems like an impossible task. It’s a long way. It’s long days. It’s even longer nights.

This is a documentary about Gordon Hughes and Vic Owens (The Happy Runner) as they attempt ot run the length of wales (253 miles / 407km) in under 88 hours.

This is a "'A 250 mile non-stop race from Holyhead to Cardiff Bay down the centre of Wales crossing several mountain ranges. Mostly on road, you will be virtually self sufficient which will make this an incredibly difficult challenge as you would come to expect from COCKBAIN EVENTS. You will follow Sustrans cycle route 8 all the way, with the last 55 miles along the 'Taff Trail', making this possibly the longest non-stop road ultra in the UK. As will all our events this will be no-nonsense, basic and low key designed to push you to your limits'." Mark Cockbain RD – Cockbain Events.
