A huge congratulations and thank you to Kate and Richard who successfully completed the “David Goggins” 4 x 4 x 48 Challenge on the 5th March 2021 where participants are challenged to run 4 miles or work out for an hour every 4 hours for 48 hours.
Richard said “The challenge started at 8pm Pacific Standard Time which meant a nice 4am start on Sat 6 March for us here in the UK. Every successive workout and run chipped away at our reserves of energy but not our sense of humour and ultimately the reason why we were doing the challenge in the first place. The night runs saw temperatures drop to -4 degrees C, and by the ninth and tenth rounds both my wife and I had stated to hallucinate. Not letting this deter us we pressed on and grabbed sleep and food where we could and we finished the twelfth and final session of the challenge at 1am on Monday morning utterly shattered and drained but elated that we’d risen to the challenge and raised funds for SAMM.”
