Comedian and actor, Eddie Izzard runs 34 marathons in 7 weeks for Sport Relief

Comedian Eddie Izzard is just of the main stars and celebrities to be involved with raising money for this year's Sport Relief.  Eddie has embarked on a real person marathon - 34 marathons in 7 weeks. 

Having left London last Monday, the 30 mile leg in Wales was particularly meaningful, passing through Skewen where he lived for a while as a young boy.

On every 30 mile leg, Eddie will carry the flag of the home nation.

Eddie just wants to go out, meet people, have an adventure and raise money for charity.  So far, he's been met with good wishers along the way and no doubt that will continue as more people hear about his appearance in their town.  As he says “I wasn’t sure if I could do it, and I’m still not, but I’m going to give it a damn good try.”

All at Speakers Corner wish Eddie good luck on his journey and should you wish to support him, please click here
