Run a marathon at the North Pole
Why would anyone be mad enough to do such an extreme challenge?
- Race Date : April 2015
- Runner : Mike Shepherd
I competed in the North Pole Marathon on the 11th April and came 24th out of 45. I was the 1st person with a pacemaker to run this race. I did it to raise much needed funds for research in ME as my daughter has had the debilitating condition since she was 12 and is now 18.
I covered all the cost of the event either through corporate sponsorship or from my own expenses, so everything you give will go to the charity. If you have not done so already, please give generously. Thank you. Mike Shepherd
