888 miles in 36 days

After many hours spent re-planning the route I'm pleased to confirm the mileage for this year's big run is 888 miles. I'm going to try and run this in just 36 days, which means I should reach Lands End (pictured) on the 11th August 2007. I'll use the 12th August as contingency should anything go wrong or my mileage is a bit out! Hopefully the 12th August will be spent driving home.

I will have to run 24.7 miles a day on average. Heaven knows what pain this will cause over the course of 36 days! I'm preparing myself for some minor injury, illness or disability. Hopefully, all that will occur will be some extremely sore legs and a few blisters!
