Runner completes 19 marathons in 19 days for coronavirus relief
A runner from the Isle of Man has gone the distance -- and beyond -- to raise money for coronavirus relief.
Christian Varley finished his final 26.2-mile effort between Peel and the island's capital of Douglas in four hours and 39 minutes, his 19th marathon in 19 days.
In the nearly three-week test of endurance, he has raised $102,000 (£83,243) for the Manx Solidarity Fund at the time of writing.
The charity was established in response to difficulties brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic on the Isle of Man, and Varley has more than quadrupled his initial target of $23,250 (£19,000).
