Besides Abbott 6 majors, this 7 marathons/ 7 continents/ 7 days event is also very interesting. Unfortunately, only for runners with deep pockets of EUR 37500 (1 time full payment) or 3 installments of EUR 13000!
Bro, agree that it is a big jump from HM to FM, unlike from 10K to HM. I have never thought of running a FM as my main objective in running is to keep fit for other sports. But ever since Uncle Chan passed away, I was thinking if we are regular runners, then maybe we should attempt FM at least once. If he can complete 101 FM before he passed away, surely I can do 1 FM?
As for the Duxton challenge, I am giving it a miss as there is no finisher medal (LOL) and I just did the Swissotel Vertical Marathon last nov. No offence to the vertical runners here but I think it is expensive climbing staircase for a view at the top, where it was totally dependent on weather condition. And I was one of those that got diverted to the 69th storey even though the rain had stopped. Chey!
I did something crazy like you last year. After finishing my Straits Time 18.45 KM event, went immediately to another place to do a Vertical Challenge of 78 floors. Regretted immediately 'cos my legs turned jelly & struggling all the way.
All the best to you.
