Day 10 of 11: 11 Marathons in 11 Days

On 18th May 2021 I took part in my 10th of 11 marathons in 11 days. I am now officially a TiT… thats right, I may have been called this a few times in the past, but I really am a TiT. I have completed Ten Marathons in Ten Days. Today the course was muddier than ever, with lots of puddles, but it was one of the nicest days to run on, with no rain and sunshine. I wore trail trainers for the first time ever, and they felt great splashing through the mud.

Day 10 finish

Today I ran my 82nd qualifying event towards the 100 marathon club. With 10 marathons in 10 days this number has flown up. It is kind of sad that tomorrow will be my last marathon in this adventure. It has been such a great challenge.

Today was fall of cheers and good wishes for all those who have completed their TiT, with some still going on to take on Twenty in Twenty. The course was muddy, but everything kind of ticked. I was full of concentration to keep my finish time consistent, and I had a lovely run. Probably the best my legs have felt for all my marathons, although my legs are heavy and clearly tired. At one point a little puppy chased me jumping up on my leg, clearly trying to sabotage my sub 4 attempt haha.

TiT finish

So happy I managed to finish my 10th marathon in 10 days in 3:59:26 on my watch, and 3:59:25 official time. That is 10 marathons in 10 days finishing in 3:59:2X with 6 seconds separating the slowest and fastest times. 

Day 10 finish

Together we have raised £4,200 for Cancer Research, thank you so much. I also still have around 30 medals left for the #FunbusMarathon For you to complete your own virtual challenge and get one of my amazing medals, so it’s not to late to get involved. I am happy for you to contact me direct about medals, as all money will be going to CancerResearch.

  1. Amazing as ever Paul !

    You were obviously already extremely good at pacing 4 hours for other runners in big events. Do you think this will have made you even better at it ?

  2. The medal IS amazing, as is your administrative ability in getting that out to me while in the middle of all your marathon efforts. Nice work matching your top to your own medal today – nice work in total as well of course!
