This Song is for him! Best of luck Mike.

About the song & video

Yes, the video has nothing to do with Mike Brooks, but until we find out where he is and what the race results, this is something to file space & time while you wait.

Well, we have not heard from Mike yet.  The web site states:

44 22 Andrew Buys Sky AC 6:52:50
44 118 Nella Dick Sky AC 6:52:50
46 121 Welmoed Geekie Florida 6:58:39
DNF 4 Shane Bremner Canadian
DNQ 3 Michael Brooks Maine Track
DNQ 25 Barry Schwartz South African
DNQ 24 Paul Selby South African

Not sure what the above means. Our guess is that there was a 7 hour limit and Mike Brooks finished but the timers were not  present to give us a chip time.

Mike B

Hi all
I will be starting the Ten Day race Wednesday. (Self-Transcendence Six and Ten Day Race 2009 – April 22 to May 2). I’m hoping to run 50 miles each day for 10 days. That’s like running two Boston Marathons every day.

Blaine Moore has kindly agreed to put information on his website daily about how the race is going for me. I will be in contact with him daily. Check out

he will also have information on how make a donation and the race website. You also can send me an email during the race.  The info is on the race website. $7,000 and 500 miles to go for Camp Sunshine.

Mike Brooks tells us:
” I think I bit off more than I can chew as the saying goes. My plan is to try to run 500 miles in a Ten Day race and raise $10,000 for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is located on Sebago Lake , Maine and helps seriously ill children and their families. To learn more about Camp Sunshine and why I am doing this race please watch the short video.
Well the fundraising part is going slow mostly because of the economy so I need your help more than ever to reach my goal. If you can make a donation it would be greatly appreciated by me and the kids , some terminally ill ,who you would be helping.
As runners you know about enduring pain. You choose to run and bring on the pain involved knowing that the pain will go away . The kids that go to Camp Sunshine suffer more than most of us could imagine and for some of them their pain will never go away.
Donate by the mile to make me try harder to get to 500 miles or a set amount. Donations can be made at or mailed to Camp Sunshine , 35 Acadia Road , Casco, ME 04015. If you mail a donation in note that it is for my fundraiser please. If you are going to donate by the mile let me know you are so I will have that much more motivation, I do not need to know the amount per mile. If you know of anyone who might donate please forward this email.
To watch the video of Camp Sunshine and me follow directions below.
Thanks for your help , Mike
