World’s Longest Footrace
Our Ambassador, William Sichel, competed in this unique New York race earlier this summer completing 2904 miles in the 52 days allowed and set multiple records at World, British and Scottish level and at a variety of distances, in what he has described as the most demanding event he has ever competed in. William commented:
“The combination of multiple days where the temperature passed 35 deg C, high humidity and prolonged torrential downpours, they were the most testing conditions I have ever been challenged with.”
William averaged 55.8 miles a day for the 52 days and finished as 5th man and 7th place overall.
From all of us at Freet, many congratulations William, and enjoy the recovery period!
