Ultra Marathon – for leukaemia research
62 miles, 11,000ft ascent, 18 hour cut-off, only 6 weeks preparation
In Lake Hushvol national park on the border with Siberia
Dave Smith, former Olympic coach, biz development consultant, author, professional Irishman – girlfriend is fighting leukaemia right now – hence the challenge.
Linh Vien Thai, escaped Vietnam war alone as a child, martial arts master, documentary maker, Tokyo based.
This is the email we got a while back from Dave Smith and his team-mate Linh Vien Thai. They said they were going to do the Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset 100km run in support of Leukemia Research and they needed a little support.
We got behind them with product (Merino Base-layers and Etobicoke’s) and they managed to take the shot below - little slice of Finisterre in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
