My name is Sam Boatwright. I am the Epic Runner. I ran 50 miles everyday for 50 days which totalled 2500 miles round the UK raising money for Help for Heroes. You can read about my journey through my blogs or follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Why not check out my shop. These are things I ran in and I found the most comfortable. 

You can buy my book direct from Amazon too but it wont be a signed copy!! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Smile-Big-Run-Hard-Fifty/dp/178148211X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376394257&sr=8-1&keywords=sam+Boatwright

Have you ever Googled yourself??? I knew something would probably come up about the run but this nearly brought a tear to my eye. This was written by my younger brother in response to an article on the Daily Mail website. I don’t remember having read this before. Having just attended his amazing wedding… hearing some amazing speeches it doesn’t surprise me he is able to write things like this.

I am today, the proudest brother in the world. However, I am also the most devastated brother because today I was not able to cheer my brother on during his final day, completing the most epic of epic runs! As ever, I am in complete awe of a man who not only has done all of this but has done it with the broadest of smiles upon his face. His humility in his achievement is also something which my egotistical and arrogant self struggles to comprehend but that is my brother. A man who has given everything for a worthy cause. I think that words of William Doane aptly summarise what I'm trying to say. You don't need to keep on keeping on now brother, you're home! Thank you for the last 50 days and to all of you out there who haven't done..give him a donation, you know he deserves it! "Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, "over steep ways to the stars," fulfills itself."

As my friend Tony the Fridge @tony_the_fridge drags his fridge from John O Groats to Lands End I hope you can all visit his website www.tonythefridge.com and support him. What Tony has done is manage to inspire me once again to push myself harder than ever before. The current record for John O Groats to Lands End is 9 Days, 2 hours and 26 minutes. In June next year I will try and break this. 100 miles a day for 9 days.
