A Chorleywood resident will be running four 100-mile marathons in four months in aid of Mission EmployAble.
Brent Mullane will run the marathons from August 8 to November 7 and he will be challenging himself to raise money for the charity.
Speaking about the challenge he said: “I’m just a guy who likes to run a lot. But what is more amazing is all the time and dedication that all the volunteers from Mission EmployAble are giving towards creating a truly fantastic future for so many young people with learning difficulties.
“The entire community will also benefit from a fantastic new cricket pavilion and a place to meet on The Common for a coffee and some food.
“Running 400 miles is easier to imagine if you break it up into manageable bite-size chunks in your head. Each of the races is 100 miles, which must be completed before the cut off time of between 27 to 30 hours.
“Each race has around 13 feed stations. This means that I just have to think about seven miles to the next checkpoint.
“So when the chaff under my arms is so painful that I have to run with one arm in the air for relief I just think about getting through the next seven miles to the feed station, take a drink and some fruit, reset and carry on.”
The person who donates the highest amount will get to choose Brent’s outfit to run in next January’s Country to Capital race that runs through the village.
The four people who donate the most, will get a finishers t-shirt for one of the races.
For every £2,000 raised Brent will also run a marathon on consecutive days to a maximum of 14 days.
