The Intrepid Mr Quin went-a-travelin' and what did he find, apart from a brewery at altitude, a wine for the Mules and a very large meat fest....a rack of original "mule shoes" as seen on our Fuel For Adventure Guarantee.

Look out for the guy who tells you he had to ski "as soon as I got out of gaol...to make it all alright"

He's done it after 3 long days that I don't think any of us could even imagine. Congratulations Josef - where did you get that hat?
Josef ran the double marathon, on day 3, in 8 hours 36 minutes. Unbelievable.
Enjoy the holiday!
P.S. Enjoy the pics (come back tomorrow and see them) as Mulebar goes back to its routes.

Josef Ajram - Our superhuman Spanish Mule - started the Hawaiin Ultraman 1 hour ago at 6.30am Honolulu time
Josef - our superhuman Spanish Mule (and distributor) has just started the Ultraman World Championships -
The ULTRAMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS are an athletic odyssey of personal rediscovery; as such, they are the next step in the endurance challenge of being human. Covering a total distance of 320 miles (515 kilometers), on the big island of Hawaii, they require that each participant complete a 6.2 mile (10 K) open ocean swim, a 261.4 mile (421 K) cross-country bike ride, and a 52.4 mile (84K) ultra-marathon run. Phewww..
Josef (on left)left Barcelona last Friday morning for the marathon flight to Hawaii after a final scoop on Thursday night with the two mule founders.
Good luck, good swim, good ride, good run. We will be thinking about you and pushing you on EVERY STROKE, PEDAL AND STEP OF THE WAY

Fine food and weather in west Wales on a mini adventure weekend based in Fishguard with a few mates and family including nephews Alfie and Ozz (seen at summit)- wicked riding - only two bikes got to the top of Carningli, fueled by Mulebar of course. Other fuel included local beef, the best, and Queen of Puddings, voted pudding of the weekend - could it be the next Mule flavour?
Also met some great people at Howies in Cardigan www.howies.co.uk, a big thanks to Scania especially for lending me a memory card - more pics when I learn how to get them on the Mac..

From the http://www.atlanticsix.com/website
"An elite group of ocean rowers and endurance athletes in an all British team will attempt to break the World Record for rowing across the Atlantic Ocean. The team will be using a combination of state of the art technology and good old fashioned grit and determination.
The record was set way back in 1992 by a French crew in ‘La Mondiale’ in 35 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. Confident in the ability of their boat and crew, the Offshore Shackers will row the 3,000 miles unsupported, setting off from La Gomera, Canary Islands on 2nd December 2007 – weather permitting- and aim to arrive into the picturesque setting of English Harbour, Antigua, Caribbean in early January 2008.
However, the physical part of this challenge is only half the story. In the weeks at sea the team will face tremendous mental hardships. Training mentally for this challenge is something that the team anticipate to be far harder than the physical challenge"

Cheers for the story James.
Providing Mule Bars for our runners at the end of the course really helps Mind to provide them with the customer care that we feel they deserve and makes them feel really valued as part of our team. They certainly seemed to be a big hit among our runners.
We have so far raised over £45,000 towards our target of £90,000 and money is flooding in so it looks like we are set to have a record year for the GNR. This sponsorship will help Mind to make a real difference to the 1 in 4 people that experience mental distress at some point in their life.

A real World Record was also set. Hats off to the great Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie for running 26 miles in 2 hours, 4 minutes!

We set the company up as a 1% For The Planet Company, dedicated to donating 1% of sales every year to environmental groups protecting our natural world. Two of our four Mulebars are Fairtrade accredited but watch this space as we are working hard with fruit and other ingredient producers around the world to make all our bars Fairtrade.
We made the first Mulebars in our own kitchens, mainly at night or in the afternoons skiving off the day job just before a ride. The first bars were pretty tasty or at least all our friends and family said so and that gave us the encouragement to develop them further testing them in extreme endurance races as well as just as daily snacks.
And now...Over the past 3 years, since coming back from the Andes, prototype after prototype has been made, tried by friends, raced with in South Africa’s Cape Epic 9 day stage race, climbed with in the Alps, wheeled along with in the Etape du Tour and used in many children’s lunch boxes. And, we've just come back from the Trans Scotland mtb race where the bars were about the only thing which kept us going.
A great pinnacle for Mulebar is that Amy Beaton, one of our exceptional Mules, took Mulebar to Everest this May.
