Project 60@60

 

Project 60@60

“My aim is to have set 60 ultra distance records before my 60th birthday on October 1st 2013.”

My Criteria

I have originated this project myself and have therefore produced my own criteria.  I wanted the distances/durations chosen to be the most popular and challenging ones.

I chose all the distances/durations recognised by the International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) and in addition to this I chose some distances/durations where marks already existed so that there were records to go for.

These records will be at World, British and Scottish level, including age groups, and range from 12 hours to 1000 miles in officially recognised races.  The IAAF only recognises performances on road, track and indoor courses, so for this Project 60@60 I will not be including event records or treadmill records.

All races will have been officially endorsed by the International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) and/or the National Athletic Federation of the host country.

My record setting exploits will be independently adjudicated by Alan Young – IAAF Grade B Course Measurer and contributor to the Association of Road Racing Statisticians.

November 2012: William achieved his 60th record during the Monaco “No Finish Line” race.

October 1st 2013: By the time of his 60th birthday William had set 70 records.

William then started Project165.com to cover the next 5 years.
