A True Herculean Ed Wilson Completes the Isle of Wight Challenge 2014

Ed Wilson completes Isle of Wight Challenge 2014

In our June newsletter we reported on the progress of Mr Ed Wilson towards his goal of completing the 2014 Isle of Wight Challenge (IOWC), a mammoth 106 km circumnavigation of the island via trail and road (that's  right, you read it correctly, 106 km!). In preparation for the event, Ed consulted with healthpro for long-distance training plans, sports nutrition, and physical therapy services. Throughout a long and arduous training cycle, Ed showed admirable commitment, discipline, and determination to achieve his targets. We're delighted to report that on Saturday the 23rd of August, Ed completed the IOWC in an incredible time of 12:16:02, arriving into the finish at Cowes as the 2nd placed male overall. All the team at healthpro wish to extend their congratulations and awestricken admiration to Ed on this huge achievement. We're only left to wonder - what next???!!!
