Orkney's William Sichel heads to Taiwan for 48 hour test

Orkney-based ultra marathon runner, William Sichel heads to the Far East this week for the first time in 13 years.  His destination is Taipei, the capital of Taiwan and their 48 Hour road race taking place from  Friday February 14th to Sunday 16th.

William last ran in Taiwan in 2001 when he was invited to the Soochow 24 Hour track race. “I was really impressed by the warm welcome I received, the enthusiastic people and the well organised events.  Hence I am happy to return this year.  I had to decline an invitation to return two years ago as it came too late and my race plans were already in place.  So I'm delighted to be able to return this year.

William is expecting a small field in the 48 Hour event, but a quality one, with leading athletes from Japan and Australia competing alongside local runners, so the competition will be tough.  A very large entry is expected in the shorter events that will be held concurrently.

Regular updates will be available on William's web site www.williamsichel.co.uk

William is working on Project165.com in which he will attempt to have set 165 ultra running records before his 65th birthday on October 1st 2018.  Amongst William's current 95 records he holds nine world age-group records including the fastest time to run 1000 miles.

William is dedicating Project165.com to raise funds for CLAN Cancer Support and his dedicated web page can be found here: www.justgiving.com/William-Sichel

William is grateful to main sponsors Orkney Micro Renewables and the Orkney Islands Council
