Meet our Ambassador

Chris explains why he took on the mad challenge of 15 marathons in 15 days

Chris Howard is our long distance Ambassador. How long? Very Long!! Chris walked and rowed around the entire British Isles for example! Simply he can’t afford to trust paper maps and naturally became an Ambassador for SplashMaps. We sponsored his most ultra of challenges to date; 15 Marathons in 15 National Parks in 15 days. In each Park he has a SplashMap uniquely tailored for his challenge. Each SplashMap covers the challenge area, some are our Pro-weatherproof survive anything maps. Some Toggle Toobs, Toobs and even microfibre towels.

Chris goes live around 4pm on Facebook as he heads for the next park! Note the backdrop.

Chris is working with the National Parks & the Woodland trust to promote the biodiversity & vital ecosystems they provide for us all to enjoy.

Chris’ Top Tip? Don’t be afraid to mix up your routes to keep things interesting.

Running the same route every day can get boring quickly. And you don’t have to do Marathons to keep things interesting. Try mixing up your routes. You can try running in a different direction, taking a new trail, or exploring a new neighborhood. Not only will this keep your workouts fresh and exciting, but it can also help you discover new favorite routes. Plus, mixing up your routes can challenge your body in new ways, helping you become a stronger and more well-rounded runner.
