Eddie Izzard Just Ran 27 Marathons In 27 Days, His Reason Will Warm Your Heart.


Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard has a long history of bringing people together. He’s known for using comedy and his eccentric style to bridge cultural gaps throughout the world, but lately he’s been hitting the pavement to show everyone he’s very serious about raising money.

Just yesterday, the 54-year-old Comedian crossed the finish line of his 27th marathon in 27 days. As word began to spread about his audacious endeavor, donations for his charity Sport Relief began pouring in for vulnerable people in the UK and the world’s poorest countries. In all, Izzard raised over £1.35M in 27 days for people in dire need.

In the video below, we find Izzard on the last day of his incredible feat preparing to run over 50 miles–two marathon distances–to make up for a day lost to illness.

Check out his strength of spirit and the triumphant moment in the video below!
