Event Overview

With just over 4 weeks to go until we set off, we are beginning to put all our plans in place for my Guinness World Record attempt... a few interesting facts to get you started:

Start date - Sunday 5th June
Start location - Malin Head (northern-most tip of Ireland)
Finish location - Mizen Head (most south-westerly point of Ireland)
Total distance - 345 miles
Current female record [Jane Porter, 2001] - 7 days, 9 hours and 36 minutes

Our route will mimic the one we will follow for our M2M Ultra in September and can be found on Google (see links below - the route is split into 11 maps as they have been marked out for each day of our M2M Ultra in September):
