A Director of an award-winning architecture practice, Stephen George + Partners based in Leicester, is training hard to undertake the challenge of a lifetime.
Mark Smith has chosen a challenge that will see him run 901 miles in a month from John O’Groats to Land’s End starting on the 1st September 2018. Mark will be running down the west of the country, he will have a support car, private paramedics and a sports therapist to help him achieve his goal.
Mark has started his extensive training program incorporating 2 gym sessions a week, a rest day accompanied by some serious stretches and 4 days of running with that being increased to 100 miles a week. He is being supported in his training by Adam Jackson, a Team GB triathlon athlete who has devised the training and nutrition plans and who is extremely experienced in these big distance challenges.
Stephen George + Partners are also supporting Mark by giving him the month off and helping him with his fundraising.
If you would like to support Mark’s Challenge you can donate or join our team at the Nottingham Half Marathon to virtually join support Mark’s final day of running or join him on a leg of the route email firstname.lastname@example.org
