    "Sky writing" on a budget!!

    Your message - handwritten on a banner/whiteboard above the trailer and towed through your town (if on route) or any town/place of your choosing on route.

    Through an urban area - where EVERYONE stops to stare at a guy towing a trailer, your message will be a lot more visible than writing in the sky, and very unique!

    write Kevin the message and it'll be running through the streets/around the world in no time!

    There's also a very good chance of it appearing on the news in your area.

    A photo of Kevin running with your message - will be posted on Facebook and tagged with your name.

    This is for individuals to send messages to another individual - not for corporate/business advertising.

    Power the World Record Run for 1 day!

    Public thank you on the Blog explaining how you helped power the run.

    Power the run for 1 day and on that particular day your name will be shown at the top of the blog-letting everyone know you helped cover Kevin's food and data for todays 32+miles.

    Brand the Periscope!! To film the 'third person' viewpoints of the video Kevin Mounts an action camera on a specially adapted backpack - with what appears to be a periscope peaking out from behind his head! This will not be worn/on display all the time but when he is filming these scenes ( busy urban shots etc) then it receives a huge amount of attention from passers by - and will certainly be a point of curiosity for the cameramen of the News Channels around the world!

    For just £50 a month (19 months) You can brand the side of the Trailer that Kevin will be towing. The trailer will be a firm favourite with TV news channels around the world! As well as the tens of thousands of motorists who rubber neck in bewilderment as they see a man towing a trailer along the road! Your logo will be shown in a 1FT/30cm x 1ft/30cm square. The trailer is 5 ft wide - giving space for just 5 logos each side. You may purchase 5 of the available squares and hence own a whole side of the trailer for your companies branding if you wish. The worlds Best Tent manufacturers Terra Nova (the same people who sponsor Ranulph Finnes Polar expeditions) and Kevin's favourite Running shoe Inov8 already have 2 of these squares so now only 8 of the 10 remain. Sorry but this is not available for either shoe or Tent manufacturers.
