Seven marathons in seven days

John Gartland has achieved what many can only dream about – running seven marathons in seven consecutive days in a morph suit.

John, General Manager at The Old Millstone in Macclesfield, not only took on this immense seven-day challenge, but he took it on in true style. He completed the 182-mile trip in an energy-sapping morph suit, which decreases the amount of oxygen to your body when running.

John said: “I’m overwhelmed with the support I’ve had, from family and friends, and people I’ve met along the way. It was definitely hard and really painful at some points (ice baths have been my saviour throughout!), but I kept focused on the charities which kept me going!”

For more information on John’s epic challenge, take a look at his Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/morphmanecho.

Congratulations John!
