Paddy Doyle walked 30 miles along the Grand Union Canal while carrying a
76-pound back pack in 10 hours and 37 seconds. Though his pack was 76
pounds and he walked an additional 300 meters, the weight and distance
have been standardized.
The record benefited the Help For Heroes charity. He was supported
throughout by British Military Fitness instructors, martial arts boxing
students from clubs around the Midlands and avid supporters. Read more
