It may be 6 years ago – but Wondrlust still salutes Eddie Izzard

In 2009, the comedian Eddie Izzard ran 43 marathons (1,100 miles) in 52 days for charity – raising over £200,000 for Sport Relief

Still to this day, Wondrlust is in awe of the herculean efforts of Eddie Izzard to raise awareness and money for the needy in Africa.

We hope this may inspire you to grab your trainers and pound the streets for a good cause (although we stop short of suggesting you need to run 43 marathons!)
