Paul’s “600 @ 60” challenge

Fencing coach Paul Sibert, who in 2017 ran the Leicester half marathon in full fencing kit, is running for Alice again!

This time his challenge is to run 600km, the distance from Leicester to Newcastle and back, at the rate of 5 km a day, for 120 days. Not satisfied merely with this, Paul is setting himself a time target as well: each day’s run must be completed in under 30 minutes, and he is looking to improve on his current best time which is 25m 30s.The first run was on March 2 (in St Lucia!), and the last will be on June 29.

Paul, who celebrated his 60th birthday in March, coached Alice when she was in the East Midlands Cadet Squad.
