I love numbers and Marathon Quest 250 generated loads of them. Over the next little while I will share some facts on: the time and distance run, the body, the weather, the routes, the schools, the shoes, the donations and the people.

So lets go:


  • Marathon distance: 42.2 kms (26.2mls)
  • Number of marathons: 250
  • Total distance run: 10,550kms (6,550mls)


  • Total marathons time: 61days 9hrs 56min 50sec
  • Average time for a marathon: 5hr 53min 45sec
  • First 125 marathons: 30days 13hrs 14mins 31sec
  • Second 125 marathons: 30days 20hrs 32min 19sec
  • Not a negative split!

Weird stuff:

  • Circumference of the earth: 40,017.16kms
  • % of circumference run: 26.4%
  • Distance cycled in 2005, Cario to Cape Town: 10,330kms
  • Average daily time on the bike: 5hr 41min 00sec

and that's not all!
