Do more than add—multiply. Do more than change—improve. His bedroom was twelve yards from his course. Watchers were hired in eight-hour shifts to make sure he indeed walked and to keep time. Thousands of spectators would come to watch. He completed his 1, quarter miles on July 4, then rested only 12 minutes and started his half miles. He had already lost 25 pounds.

The local paper believed he was walking himself to death. On July 25th he finished his half-mile challenge, and at 3 a. Halfway through, a government doctor came to examine him and found his pulse rate to be 92 beats per minute. He wowed the crowd by doing a mile and racing against other pedestrians who came to visit. During the day he averaged about minute miles and at night about minute miles.

On one of his last days, he was so disoriented that he walked into a wall cause bruises from head to knee. On his final mile the shouts and the applause of the massive crowd could be heard from far away. Searles, a rival of Richard Manks, first accomplished 1, miles in 1, hours at Tranmere near Liverpool in , starting each mile at the top of the hour. During his th mile, a young child ran under the ropes of his course and suddenly appeared at his feet. Searles had to spring to the side to avoid hurting the child and sprained his ankle.

It swelled up badly and he had to do many miles on crutches. He prevailed and finished the match. He then immediately continued and accomplished 1, half-miles in 1, half hours, and 1, quarter miles in 1, quarter hours for 1, total miles in 1, hours duplicating what Richard Marks had already accomplished but Searles did it in a much harder reverse order. Thousands came to the grounds to watch on weekends. Toxteth Park On September 20, , Searles began his attempt to walk 2, miles in 2, half hours on a round track that involved seven laps to a mile near the Pineapple Inn, at Toxteth Park in Liverpool, England.

By miles he had lost 10 pounds. He had continued to lose weight at 1, miles. One Sunday he allowed a young man to race him during a mile. He really pressed the speed and accomplished his mile in less than ten minutes. The crowds were very large and promoters raised admission on Sundays.

Searles perhaps was an early adopter of the ultramarathon belt buckle. He said he would finish if he had to walk on crutches. He complained of dizziness during his night but recovered during the days.

One night a man wanted to see if Searles was really still walking.

He climbed to the top of a railing surrounding the grounds and fell over into a pond. Searles, walking at the time, heard the splash in the dark and rushed to helped the man get out of the pond. The public started to get rather skeptical in recent years if these matches were being conducted fairly.

Some walkers in these enclosed area had been accused of stopping during nights. He walked 36 miles per day and up to 8, paying spectators would come to watch each day. He walked a quarter-mile track and a large hut was constructed for his quarters. Opposite this hut is the head-quarters of the judges, in front of which a large clock is fixed. Gale really struggled with bad pain behind his knee and he became very depressed. Almost invariably the wiry little man appears up to time and often steps from his hut door at the very instant that the deep boom of Big Ben can be heard in the distance.

Each lap for going to the mile is called by the walking judge on duty, and duly echoed by the assistant judge in the box, who records the same in a book. And thus the weary hours of night pass. In time the judges are relived and Gale takes his cold bath, the effect of which at times seems simply miraculous and in the early walk after it influence Gale seems to be another man to the one who but two hours before had plodded round with haggard look and shaking knees.

Gale started walking about quarter miles. He soon suffered from terrible headaches, congested ears, and pained legs.

But by the second week his sleep patterns had adjusted and he could sleep comfortably for about four-five minutes between his walks. He would fall asleep at once in a sitting position and woke up instantly on being touched. For each hour period he slept about a total of hours. He thought he was out in the country in a farmyard. He could only recognize the dark line of the track before him. During the third week he was so constipated that his pulse was low and he became very week.

Castor oil solved that problem. More than 10, people came to watch him reach his 1,th mile. He walked his last quarter mile in There was harsh criticism in the newspapers about his accomplishment. He accomplished his task, and may claim the barren honour of having done more than any other pedestrian, but no one would be surprised to hear that the unnatural strain which he put upon himself had brought him to a premature grave.

For four weeks this man has been walking with an interval every ten minutes of five or six minutes rest. Toward the end of his weary and bootless tramp he had to walk in a semi-somnolent state, and on one occasion he stood still, fast asleep. He had to be continually roused and urged on.

He has walked his 4, quarter-miles in 4, successive ten minutes, but what does it amount to. At the best he has won the empty applause of a thoughtless mob, and put a few pounds into his pocket. There is nothing to learn from such exhibitions save they are positively injurious, physically and morally. But their achievements were rarely covered widely as compared to the men.

Women were not allowed to do walking events in many venues and thus most were conducted in more private settings. In Derek Martin gave a presentation on Barclay Matches from He estimated that there were at least women who attempted, completed, or claimed to have completed a Barclay Match of some flavor between and In , the first known woman walked miles in hours.

She was Mrs. Harrison, age 50, who walked on the Leeds and Whitehall Road. From to a few women started to take on the challenge wearing bloomers, perhaps sparked by American Katie Irvine who went to England and made attempts. Jane Dunn and Annie Foster were successful in covering the entire 1, miles. One of the most widely covered walk by a woman was accomplished by Emma Sharp, age 30, of Bowling, England who started her walk on September 17, at Bradford, England near a pub, the Quarry Gap Hotel.

She chose to be sensible and dressed like a man. She used a roped-off yard course, and walked a mile at the end of an hour and another at the top of the next hour.

Unlike other attempts by women, thousands came out to watch and made bets. Early on she suffered from swollen ankles by they became stronger as she went along. As occurred to many of the men walkers, shady characters attempted to stop her. She was attacked with chloroform, burning embers were thrown on her, some attempted to drug her food, and others tried to trip her.

During the final days, eighteen police officers, not in uniform, disguised as civilians watched over her and attempted to catch these criminals. One friend walked in front of her with a loaded rifle at night. Emma finally walked the last two days carrying a pistol which many times she would fire in the air as a warning. Sharp finished successfully her 1, x 1, on October 29, in front of thousands of spectators. A band played and an ox was roasted in her honor.

Her husband had been embarrassed with her man-like efforts and stayed out of public view.

But once he realized how much money she won, he quit his job and started his own business. In he Ellsworth competed against a Mr. Fogg or Brown at the 1, x 1, on a course at Chelsea, Massachusetts.

Ellsworth finished. For many days he had to battle walking in almost incessant rains. When the sun was out it was terribly hot and humid. Three men were hired as watchers and had to swear in front of a judge with threats of perjury charges that they would report on his success or failure. Ellsworth went on to finish his third successful x For the fourth time he went the distance in at St.

He then set off immediately to walk miles in hours. In he did it again for the 5th time in Sacramento, California. He became the most prolific Barclay Match walker in American history. Other Americans completed the match in those early years. Kelley completed the match in Sacramento, California.
