A 100k walk in memory of his Liverpool fan brother was not a walk in the park for Manchester United fan Simon Plumb.
Local businessman Simon, who runs Lymm based marketing agency SPA and his team, successfully walked 100k in 24 hours recently in the Trailwalker Challenge near Brighton, raising over £2k for Oxfam.
Walking in memory of his brother Nigel, a massive Liverpool fan, ‘The You’ll Never Walk Alone Team’ consisted of Simon, his son Ben, Nigel’s son Sam and fitness guru Kasia.
“We plan annual challenges in Nigel’s memory, who sadly died aged 48, but this has to be one of the toughest we have ever faced,” commented Simon.
“Our support crew of six family members, worked all day and through the night, meeting us at the checkpoints and we could not have done this without their unstinting support.
“I am delighted to say our feet are recovering and the blisters are gradually disappearing! I would also like to thank all our sponsors who had the faith in us to complete this tough, physical and mental challenge.”
