Each competitor wants to complete the race on the day. But along the way they are engaging on a journey, a personal challenge of guts and will, determination that the psychological wall can be scaled, the girth of beer can be kicked into oblivion.

So it would be only right to record the progress….

We will publish training accomplishments on a weekly basis – if only to provide metrics to support the excuses for poor times on the day….

We will also show the physical progress with photographic evidence to see the true effect this extreme training puts on the average, middle aged, city professional gent!

So we have asked each to take a before training starts photo, David obliges and tries to set the bar.
