“Running a hundred miles is like living a year in one day”
Ultramarathon runner Damian Hall has set a new record time for the 185-mile Wainwright’s Coast to Coast route.
The 45-year-old battled sleep deprivation, heavy rain and boggy underfoot conditions along the route, which includes 28,000ft of ascent – almost the equivalent height of Mount Everest.
Damian, the holder of multiple ultramarathon records, said: “I hiked the Coast to Coast in 2007, but I don’t remember it being as tough as it was this time around! Of all my record attempts this one proved to be the most difficult and the one which forced me to dig the deepest.
Damian takes us through his journey of how he now uses running as his outlet and how he juggles family life with trying to make a difference in this world that we live.
