4 Marathons in 24 hours

My good ultrarunning friend David (Mr Immune) has taken on a mammoth challenge this year to not just run the Virgin London Marathon once (that would be too simple for David) but to run it FOUR times, yes you read it right dear reader four times!!!

It has been unusual as David and I have both run in his annual "big" challenges over the past few years

2009 - London to Brighton trail run (57 miles)
2010 - Ridgeway Challenge (87 miles)

and now for 2011 he is to run 4 marathons in 24 hours (104.8 miles)

David will be running for the Shooting Star Childrens Hospice and his charity donation page is here

I have other challenges ahead of me this year but to keep the tradition alive we have agreed that I run at least one leg of his 4 marathons and have been offered the third marathon which will be the hardest for him to complete psychologically, I have happily accepted this responsibility.
