Marathon golfing, anyone?

No no, it’s a thing.

Marathon golfing has apparently been around for over 140 years.

Who knew?

I read a fascinating article online, in which we learn:

“What has been called “Marathon Golf” is the art of playing as many rounds or holes as possible in a certain amount of time, usually a day (24 hours)”

How bizarre.

Golf, run, golf, run and repeat.

Actually, why did I just say it’s bizarre?

It’s not that bizarre, logically, it’s just the sartorial image it presents. For a sport more usually clothed in checked shorts of dubious stylishness and equally dubious caps, the vision of golfers in Ts and running shoes is quite – well – bizarre.

Wonder what other sports we could combine with ultra running?

It would have to be an individual sport (so tennis, badminton, football wouldn’t work).

Not too much equipment.

Off the top of my head, I can’t think of another marathon + sport combo?
