Starting on Sunday 14th April in the New Forest, Jordan plans to travel the country completing a marathon a day in each of the countries 15 National Parks. This amounts to a total of 393 miles or 633 km (approximately) in just over 2 weeks. The aim is twofold; to raise a total of £1000 and awareness for three charities; Frontline Children, Seafarers UK and Epilepsy Action, and encourage people to take advantage of these beautiful natural spaces. To this end, he is welcoming people to join him and encourages interested parties to contact him on social media to arrange.

 

“This challenge is going to be logistically difficult, and physically taxing. It will also be fascinating to see all of the UK’s National Parks in such quick succession and moving through them on foot is very exciting. If anyone wishes to join me at any stage please let me know on Social Media!” - Jordon Wylie

 

Jordan is a bestselling author, TV personality, and extreme ultra-endurance adventurer. In 2018 his project ‘Running Dangerously’ saw him run through some of the most dangerous warzones on the planet to raise awareness and over £100,000 for charity.

 

Jordan’s plan allows for flexibility; due to the unpredictable nature of the UK’s weather, and wide variety of terrain, he hopes to be able to maximise the challenge’s chance of success by being flexible with his plan.
