                     RHYS JENKINS QUEST FOR 870 MILE RUN RECORD

Rhys is attempting to set a new record today, by becoming the fastest known person to travel the entire Wales Coast path on foot, an incredible 870 miles. The current record is held by James Harcombe, from New Zealand, who set a  time of 20 days 12 hours and 55 minutes on the 2nd May 2017. Rhys hopes to beat this time and bring the record back home to Wales.

Starting today the 21st July in Chester, this incredible test of human endurance will require Rhys to run the equivalent of 33.2 marathons and climb the height of Mount Everest 4.5 times!
ITS FOR A CHARITABLE CAUSE 
Over the last 10 years, Rhys has raised over £100,000 for various charities through his ultra-endurance challenges, and this time is no different. Rhys is hoping to raise £1,000 for each of his three chosen charities that are extremely close to his heart
