Sport Relief 2016 by Bruno and Daisy
Sports relief is coming up soon; everyone is hyped up for the fun and energetic 2 days of sport!
For sports relief Eddie Izzard is putting back on his running shoes and is going to attempt running an insane amount of marathons. He will be running 27 marathons in a period of 27 days across South Africa. This adds to a total of 707 miles (1,134 km)! In temperatures that can reach up to 40°C.
Its day 9 of the challenge and Eddie is doing lots of live videos on lots of channels in the UK to encourage his viewer’s and anyone else to show their support.
With 13 and a half marathons completed, Eddie has reached the halfway mark on the 14th day of his challenge. So far Eddie has raised a total of £271,376.
Inspired by Eddie?
We don’t want you to think that you have to run 27 marathons in 27 days to help change thousands of people’s lives. We want you to choose your own challenge, sign up to it, give it a go. Don’t feel like you have to do something over your comfort zone, just do something for sports relief to raise money that you think is possible for you to succeed.
