Welcome to Mr Mad’s Official Site!

40 people a year get invited to attempt the Ultraman event.

This is the story of one of those people.

My name is Alan MacPherson, I’m also known as Mr Mad.

Welcome to my story and my life on the bike, in the water and on the road.

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.

    Good luck Mr Mad! Did the same basics as you at Catterick, we went to 48 then Germany, and their out paths diverged!

    Ps…I’m sure you were called Mr Mad on basics! ;-)
