Marco Consani: Athlete Focus - Pyllon Endeavour

What is the Challenge?

To run 192 miles as part of a team on the West Highland Way from Milngavie to Fort William and back in 24 hours.

Why?

To raise awareness of the mental health challenges which we are all likely to face at some point in our lives either personally or with those around us. As ultra runners, we are used to dealing with problems on our own. But we know that having support around us is key in those tough times, and there’s never any shame in asking for help.

We hope that this event will encourage people to be open and honest about how they feel and that we’ll all create a safe environment day to day, for others to share their challenges and experiences.

Please help us raise awareness - it’s ok, not to be ok.

Who is Marco Consani?

Lakeland 100, G2E, Barcelona 24 winner and GB 24-hour athlete.

Why this challenge?

Marco was delighted to be involved in this challenge as he feels that the sport has done so much for him over the years. As well as staying fit there are so many benefits to being involved in the sport and the community is such a big part of that.

Marco hopes that his experience running 24 hour races will allow him to run his sections strongly and also to help keep all the other runners moving!

How to help Marco?

Get involved, by tracking us online, supporting us on the day, and / or by making a donation to SAMH. We’ve already reached our initial fund raising target, but we never expected so much support this early, so please help us reach over 200%!
