Support ultra runner Mark Horne’s challenge to be the first person to run the full 134 miles of the John Muir Way in just 24 hours.

Starting in Helensburgh at midday on Saturday 25th April 2015, Mark aims to reach Dunbar 24 hours later in his bid to raise money for management and promotion of the route.  His race along the John Muir Way will be followed by a BBC film crew for The Adventure Show.

A member of Hartree Jets Ecosse, a performance triathlon squad based in Edinburgh, Mark will cover the equivalent of five back to back marathons and commented on his coast to coast quest: “John Muir is renowned for his adventures in the great outdoors. This run is my own challenge but I hope people across the Central Belt and beyond will have their own adventures, whether they be on the whole route or sampling a short section.”

Money raised by Mark will be used to improve or enhance the physical infrastructure of the route to increase the enjoyment for users of the John Muir Way.
