Preston Chronicle 17th March 1821
A person of the name of Robert Skipper, of pedestrian
notoriety, commenced on Monday last, the arduous task
of walking 50 miles a day, for twelve successive days,
Sunday excepted. He starts every morning about five
o'clock, on the other side of Lancaster, and walks to the
Shakespeare Tavern in this town, where he breakfasts,
and returns northwards soon afterwards. Yesterday was
the fifth day of his performance, and he appears to be
as little fatigued as on completion of the first day of his
arduous undertaking. He confidently asserts that he could
travel on foot 60 miles a day for 12 days together.
He is about 46 years of age, is about 5' 10" high, and of
a muscular, though rather slender build. He is said to have
excelled most of the celebrated pedestrians in the kingdom,
and we can only add that he depends solely, for the reward
of his labour, on the contributions of a generous public.
