This challenge is going to be incredibly tough, physically and mentally. But I know that after 24 hours I will stop and feel immediately better. My pain is short-lived.
The world record
Luca will attempt to cover 260.4 km on a treadmill in a single 24 hours period; or in other words, 6 marathons back to back… plus a bit! He is expected to take over 250,000 steps, burn around 15,000 calories and drink approximately 14 litres of fluids (plus unlimited amount of caffeine).
This is all to raise money for Camp Quality! Camp Quality is a children’s cancer charity delivering innovative programs and services which develop life skills and strengthen wellbeing in children 0-13 impacted by cancer, whether their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love (parent, carer or sibling).
