WEDNESDAY 1st JUNE – John forced to retire due to injury
Update from John –” I had to retire from the event after Stage 2
Started Stage 2 Tuesday morning, hoping that I could run off the injury, towards the latter stages I was in excruciating pain, the last 6 miles were very uncomfortable.
Woke up yesterday morning (Wednesday) could not put the left foot trainer on due to the swelling, bruising and advised by medic to retire.
I have been very fortunate to have been able to run 2 of the stages, 82 miles in 2 days, very challenging in places.
I am very sad and extremely disappointed that I could not complete the journey.”
We wish John a speedy recovery and congratulate him upon a tremendous achievement, despite his injury and the pain he was in !
