Rollagranola is delighted to announce it will sponsor Tom Whittle as he attempts to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest crossing of Iceland by foot.
He will be fuelled with a mixture of Rollagranola’s high energy granola to help provide essential boosts of energy during the trek across volcanic ash, snow and mountainous rocks.
Tom has joined the team at Rollagranola as one of our nutty ambassadors, setting out to prove that great tasting food can be healthy and full of energy, enough to carry you across a whole country apparently.
Proving just how nutty he is Tom, will not be coming into the challenge with a lot of experience.
Tom Whittle said: “Whilst running has always played a part in my life, it would be a push to say I am a true ‘runner.’ With one painfully slow marathon to my name, I have not spent more than a couple of hours on my feet since that marathon five years ago.
“The only training behind me is a long cycle ride and a fairly quick-fire triathlon training programme. Fingers crossed this is enough; I have no idea if it is.”
We’ve supplied Tom with enough granola to last the trip and hopefully get him through some really tough times to come. We’re all the way behind Tom, he epitomises the message we want to send out to people. Eat good food and be a bit nutty, maybe just not quite as nutty as Tom.
