A year ago Jenni Davies attempted to do a charity half marathon for Adventure Plus on a space hopper! She raised a superb amount and did 6.5miles, still breaking the world record. Jenni was shattered, but it was not the half marathon she had hoped to do… This year she attempted it again in full knowledge from last years’ experience of the epic task ahead of her.
The distance was checked and checked again and she had to do 65 laps around the field at this years Family Fun Day to complete a half marathon, 13.1 miles! Just under six hours in, Jenni had done her 13.1 miles. She then went on to hop another 4 laps ‘just to make sure’ the challenge was achieved. Jenni’s comment on this “well I’ve got to make sure I do the distance this time!” With the distance checked again it was confirmed that in six hours and forty minutes Jenni had achieved 14 miles on a space hopper! It was such an amazing feat accomplished that day, with donations for her space hopping reaching a further £750.
She has also sent her information about her challenge to the Guinness Book of World Records. The money raised went towards Adventure Plus and the Warneford Hospital.
