This week's Vincent Award goes to Dave Moretta. David Moretta is an ex-British soldier and is now a sponsored ultra marathon runner who is about to attempt his longest run yet...350 miles non-stop in Iceland this July:
Twenty-eight-year-old Dave, from Ribchester, estimates he will have to run non-stop for four days and four nights to break the record. “It is going to be extremely tough, but I am going to give it the best shot I can. It is the hardest thing I will have done to date,”
Running these extreme distances takes more than just physical training, it requires an incredible amount of determination and mental stamina. Well Done David and good luck this summer!
