Terry Rosoman will end up having to carry 37kg if £10,000 is raised for Mind
Welshman Terry Rosoman will this Saturday attempt to run 50 miles while carrying a load that is weighted according to the amount of money donated to Mind via his web page.
For the Pound for Pound Ultramarathon, the 35-year-old will complete 10 five-mile loops of a route in the Vale of Glamorgan.
At the start of each loop, the fundraising total will be checked and the weight increased appropriately.
For every £50 raised up to £2000, one pound will be added to the weight of the load. However, this will be graded such that, from £2000-4000, one pound will be added for each £100 raised. With further graduations applied, the table below shows the amount he would have to carry if a certain amount if raised.
£2000 = 40lb (18kg)
£4000 = 60lb (27kg)
£6000 = 70lb (31.7kg)
£8000 = 76.6lb (34.75kg)
£10,000 = 81.6lb (37kg)
£10,000+ = 1lb added for each £500
Due to local lockdown rules, he will not be disclosing the exact location of his challenge, which will be in support of the mental health charity, and he will not be leaving the district.
Rosoman will work mental toughness brand Rokman in his challenge.
“Physical challenges are journeys of self-discovery,” says Terry. “By setting the most intimidating goal possible and working to achieve that goal, we not only improve physical fitness but also fortify our mental strength. By cultivating a deep inner resilience we can achieve a higher state of performance, wellbeing, and ultimately improve our overall quality of life.
"As the founder of Rokman, I felt I needed to do more, to lead by example and undertake the most intimidating challenge possible. I don't profess to be the best athlete in the world but I have a great desire to help and inspire others to be better.”
