David Baird's 4115 km Wheelbarrow Journey

0

David Baird has just completed his Herculean 112-day journey pushing a wheelbarrow across Australia (that's 4,115 km or 2,557 mi on foot). He did this to raise money for breast and prostate cancer research.

The fit looking 65-year-old said he was feeling 'amazingly good', considering he had traveled a massive 4115km on foot.

Taking in about 70 towns along the way, Mr Baird said he pushed the wheelbarrow for between 10 and 12 hours a day. [...]

While he never had any doubts he wouldn't complete his journey, he admitted each day "was hard".

"My most concern was my survival with the traffic, he said. That was quite horrendous."
