On friday 19th May Gary is setting off for Nepal to complete the highest marathon on earth - The Everest Marathon. It starts at around 5,400 metres (17,700 ft) above sea level so Gary has until 29th May to train and acclimatise to be able to run at this altitude.
Unfortunately, due to business commitments Gary has had to delay his entry in the Everest Marathon. "The trouble is its 3 weekd away for a one day Marathon!, said Gary". He has another event in 2013 which clashes with the Everest Marathon so he has to wait until 2014 to attemp it.
