Iron Man Paddy Doyle eyes up 300th career record in Balsall Common


World Champion strength and endurance athlete Paddy Doyle is attempting a multi-disciplined sequence of world record challenges in Balsall Common tomorrow (Saturday 17th August) while attempting to rack up his 300th career record in the process. The former paratrooper and serial world record breaker kicks off his set of challenges with a gruelling 13 mile cross-country speed march carrying a 100lb backpack, starting and finishing at the Royal British Legion on Station Road next to Berkswell Station.


Once back at the Royal British Legion Paddy will then undergo three further strength and fitness world record challenges, including back of hand push ups, step-up and squat thrust one minute challenges, all under the weight of a 40lb backpack.


Paddy aims to be finishing his 13 mile speed march at the Royal British Legion at approximately 1pm and anyone wishing to see the finish and ensuing world record attempts is invited to arrive from around 12:30pm to be there in time to see the action.
