Nigel completes Ultra to celebrate turning 50!
Long time supporter of O2e, Nigel Harper, decided to mark his 50th birthday with an extraordinary challenge in true O2e spirit.
I had planned to run a marathon for my 50 birthday to ensure I reached my half century with a moderate level of fitness.
I decided to run a 29 mile leg of the Jurassic coast ultra marathon.
The route started at Lyme Regis and followed the coast path to Portland Bill.
