Marathon man Gary McKee completes 365th run of year in £1m charity bid https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-64134196

Why haven’t the media made more of this incredible bloke before today.

I mean someone like Eddie Izzard runs a number of back to back marathons and it’s all over the media but this incredible bloke. Until today had heard nothing of him.

Hats off to him and let’s get that £800k up a notch

Or what about this chap?

A 75-year-old man has run 75 marathons in 75 consecutive days to raise money for a school.
Ray Matthews, from Maltby, near Rotherham, South Yorkshire, completed his challenge earlier after starting out on 2 July.
He said: "I'm feeling better than I should be feeling."
The challenge has raised about £13,000 so far for Rotherham's Newman School, which caters for a range of special educational needs and disabilities.
Mr Matthews ran into the grounds of the school to complete his final marathon and was greeted by supporters.
He said: "It has been tough at times to do 75 marathons in 75 days, but I've done what I said I'd do."

That guy is a hero. What a fantastic achievement. I get knackered thinking about that sort of challenge.
