To break that record he would have to cover the equivalent of three marathons every day for 11 consecutive days. They set off from the tip of Scotland, accompanied by Harold Williamson. Ahead lay 841 miles of desolation, dehydration, hallucination and pain. It was a labour of love and laughter; an experience never to be repeated.
