Route

The final route is likely to be around 360 miles, or running a marathon a day for 15 days. I will be running off road (other than the two organised marathons) and self-supported, carrying my own kit and camping for most overnight stops.

WW1 MapThe red line shows the route of the run. After running the Paris Marathon, I will head north from Paris to Amiens, before following the line of the Western Front, visiting key sites such as Thiepval, Arras, Vimy Ridge, Loos, Messines Ridge and the Menin Gate in Ypres. After crossing the channel I will then run from Dover to London, ready to finish at the London Marathon on 22nd April.
