Fitness Guru Plans To Swim 100km Ultramarathon While Dragging 100lb Tree On His Back

Ross Edgely is a fitness eveil genius.  He participated in the world’s longest rope climb, has run 30 marathons in 30 days, and decided both those endurance challenges just weren’t enough for him.

Ross is the driving force behind what he’s calling “Strongman Swimming.”  Conceived over “exactly six beers” according to Ross, he will swim a 100km ultramarathon, all while dragging a 100lb tree on his back.

Ross will be coached by professional swimmers and compete in plenty of mid-distance challenges, all because he wants to “challenge what sports science believes the human body is capable of.”

The ultramarathon is broken down into four separate events, spread all across the world, and Ross plans to donate all the proceeds from the challenge to charity.
