Heart radio’s Jamie Theakston is in the middle of a challenge to complete 7 marathons in 7 days walking from Cardiff to London! He will cover the 182.7 miles between the 28th September–5th October. In doing so, he aiming to raise £50,000 for a charity which helps disadvantaged children & young people.
On Tue 2nd October, Jamie will complete his marathon for that day on Marlow Bridge! After arrival, he will be given a much needed sports massage by Mark Skoyles of Marlow Sports Therapy.
The latest we have been advised is that he will arrive 6.00-6.15pm, but of course there might be some flexibility in this. We will try to keep you updated.
On the fundraising page, Jamie says “To say that I’m a little apprehensive is an understatement. Even walking one marathon is a challenge, but doing that every day for seven days in a row is a massively daunting prospect that will push me to my absolute limits. It’s going to be incredibly tough but I’ve been training hard and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I don’t pick up a blister on day one!”
