Teenager Tom Hunt is waiting to hear if he will secure a place in the Guinness Book of World Records after running from Land’s End to John O’Groats for the ME Association.
The 18-year-old hopes to discover if he can be officially registered as the youngest runner to perform the 900-mile mission. Tom was given access to the Global Alerting Platform (GAP) - a world-class cellular and satellite communications platform by software company, two10degrees so he could track his progress. Tom used the company's online hub, the GAP Portal, and their smartphone app to collect data that he will be using as evidence for Guinness World Records. Two10degrees also created a public map so Tom's supporters and potential donors could moitor him.
"This would not have been possible without you and the public loved being able to follow me thanks to your brilliant software"
Tom has raised almost £20,000 for the ME Association during his remarkable endurance effort. The run took him 31 days, the equivalent of running 38 marathons back to back.
“I’m already wondering ‘what next?’ I’d definitely like to set myself another challenge in the future.”
“We’ll definitely be here to support Tom again if he chooses to take on another crazy challenge. Tom should be very proud of what he has achieved, and we feel very lucky to have been part of his epic journey.”
Charlotte Prodger, Marketing & Communications Manager, two10degrees
