20 mile mark in 2 56. Just over an hour for the last 6.2 but gets hard from here. No cramp or muscle pulls he will smash it.

I have no memory of the last 5km from one I ran in 2012. Just remember sitting down on the ground after and barely being able to get up! Hopefully Sham enjoys every minute of this!

Not sure I could run a 1/4 marathon without walking some of it, so I have great admiration for anyone who does this :muscle::sunglasses:
