Kit breakdown – seven marathons in seven days

Redefining ‘brave’, Travel Channel presenter Rob Bell is planning to run seven marathons in seven days across all seven of the world’s continents, starting in Antarctica today (January 19th).


“I’ve done endurance events before, but nothing like this,” says Bell, who is doing the challenge with five friends. “The running itself will of course be a challenge but having any sleep confined to the few hours I can grab on planes between locations adds a whole new element. And I like my sleep.

“We are doing this in order to raise money for charity. We have selected: KEEN London (UK) and The John Maclean Foundation (Australia). These charities provide access to sport for disabled children as well as helping them lead normal lives. This adventure is self-funded and all donations go directly to the charities.”
