Boxwell v Canal

Mark running on a towpathWhile our illustrious #TwinTown18 teams are heading over to France this weekend, spare a thought, and maybe a few pounds for Mark Boxwell, who's running the Grand Union Canal Race for us. It's a 145-mile ultra marathon from Birmingham to London.

Wait. 145 miles?

"The longest race I've done before is a fifty mile race completed in just under 11 hours," said Mark. "That left me in bits."

"I don’t think I could be any fitter, but I'm both excited and terrified at what lies ahead! The post-race photos of my feet and ankles will be 18-rated. I've no idea if I'll be able to complete the GUCR, but I'm going to give it my best shot."

We'll raise a glass to you in Le Touquet, my friend.
