I love riding motorbikes and I enjoy running, so why not combine these two passions and wrap them up in a challenge to myself? I’m not trying to break any records here: I’m no expert rider and only an average runner, but I’m interested to see what the old body is capable of when it’s hauled across the globe to marathons in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, North America, Antarctica and Europe.


I have no idea how far I’ll get on this journey but one thing is certain in my mind: the longer I leave it, the harder it gets, which is why I’ve set a date and told enough people to make it impossible to back out now.
