65k yesterday – 465 in last 10 days

Time to say goodbye to Ecuador and hello to Peru

Logistics keeps me static in Quito!!!

When I started the South American stage of my expedition I set myself a very ambitious personal target of getting to Buenos Aires by New Year’s Eve. To be able to achieve this I would need to run an average of 42km every day without a break. The few people who knew the target said […]
