“Just a couple more times over the horizon…”

Howdy folks, you all know what day it is! … Saturday.

Also update day!

So, where was Mr Frodo when I last left off? He was about half way up the country with an impressive 500+ miles racked up. Now? Well, it appears he has been smashing it this week, eating up the miles as he races across Scotland covering what must be easily 800 miles by now.

Upon entering Scotland the journey seems to have been a long battle of constant muscle pains countered only by sheer force of will to keep moving, ‘though the prettiful scenery Scotland has to offer has probably helped with the enthusiasm somewhat.

Another Weekend – Another Update


Hi guys! Guess who!

Sam here, it’s weeekeeend! Which to most people means “let’s all go out and get stupidly drunk!” to others, such as myself, it means I have some free time on my hands, so naturally, time for an update on Frodo’s progress!

It has been approximately 1 week since my last update and as shown by the update from Yvonne yesterday, our runner seems to get more impressive with every passing day, he’s now well past the half way point on this 1,000 mile run (to the non math-buff’s amongst us I’ve confirmed via Microsoft Calculator; that’s more than 500 miles!) so, several days and several hundred miles, there’s bound to be a story or two to tell.

Where is Frodo now?


This map shows Dan’s progress up to day 14 (21st March 2014) of his Lands End to John O’Groats Challenge: He is estimated to have already run over 500 miles and the chart below shows roughly where those miles were covered:

This shows us that he has passed the halfway mark and let’s hope he can keep his spirits up and face the rest of the challenge with the grit, determination and humour that he has shown thus far.

Don’t forget to visit http://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/danmayers to donate to Sport Relief and reward Dan’s colossal effort (if you haven’t already). Your support is appreciated.

The Journey So Far.

How-do readers! Sam again, weekend is here, it’s time for a progress report on the further adventures of Frodo the running hobbit!

The Journey So Far.

When last I left off, Dan was enjoying the sea and sun while making his way along the coast of Cornwall. That was 6 days ago. Suffice it to say; significant progress has been made since.

And… He’s off!

Hi guys, Sam here with an update on the progress so far!

Well, it’s official! (… Sort of) more of an estimate based on Facebook updates; but the event has started! Our hobbit friend set off from Land’s End at approximately midday on Saturday 08/03/14, which of course marks the beginning of what is sure to be the longest journey since a few years back when he left the Shire to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mt Doom.

… And so, it begins.

Good evening folks! Sam here, another of the Mayers siblings.

First of all, I’ll start by saying – it is time! (I’ve always wanted to say that) – But anyway! To business! Frodo Dan’s long anticipated Land’s End to John O’Groats 1,000 mile run for Sport Relief is about to begin and I appear to have been given a seat of power in relation to the on-going administration of this blog while our intrepid runner is somewhat computer-less for the coming weeks.
