Orkney’s William Sichel to defend Monaco 8 Day title in November

Orkney-based ultra marathon runner, William Sichel (58) will return to the Monaco “No Finish Line” 8 Day ultra marathon in November to defend the title he won there last year.

In last November’s race (which had over 6,000 participants) William won the event outright and set a new course record becoming the first person to cover more than 1000km/624 miles during the 8-day event.

Normally William and his team operate on a shoe-string budget for the race, but this year one of the world’s leading hotels – Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo will be sponsoring William and his support team’s participation in the event.

“I’m very grateful for the magnificent offer from Hotel Metropole to get involved with my team and me. This is the kind of support I have always wanted in my running. I look forward to being part of their team as well.”

JC Messant, Managing Director, Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo said:

“I am delighted and very honored to take part in this year’s No Finish Line with William whom I had the pleasure of meeting last year. It seemed natural to me to include William in the Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo sports team and to therefore offer him the support and the logistics he deserves. It is also clearly a great motivation for all of us to run alongside such a great sportsman”

The Monaco event runs from November 17th to 25th 2012.

William is a member of the Orkney Athletic Club and is currently engaged in Project 60@60 in which he is attempting to have set 60 ultra distance records, at World, British and Scottish level, including age-groups, before his 60th birthday on October 1st 2013.

Currently William has set 58 records, including 6 World Age-Group records.

William is grateful to sponsors Loganair, Myprotein and Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo.
