Project Iceman

Site D colleague Glen Baddeley is taking on an Official Guinness World Record attempt to raise funds for the Boparan Charitable Trust. 

Glen said: "We only get one chance on this planet to make our mark. 

"In September this year I will be attempting something which for many will seem impossible, for most difficult, and the rest plain crazy.

"I will be attempting to set an Official Guinness World Record for the time taken to run across Iceland. The record stands at just over 10.5 days and will require me running a double marathon daily to break it. I will be fully tracked via GPS and my progress will be visible on the internet. 

"Just as with my Oman desert run, I will be raising money for the Boparan Charitable Trust. There will be many fundraising initiatives over the next few months.

"I'd love to have you share the journey with me!"

There will be opportunities to support Glen leading up to the attempt and you will be able to see his progress and training, and make donations through:
