Motivational speaker Alexandra Panayotou completed a 24-hour solo running challenge, from which she raised thousands of pounds for the Trussell Trust Foodbank network.
Alex broke her personal record in the challenge , which was a gruelling 24 hour run in London’s National Sports Centre track at Crystal Palace.
The event marked the second in Alex’s year-long series of three UK-based solo challenges, which will culminate with the determined athlete attempting to run 1,500 miles around the UK in 31 days – at an average of 50 miles a day!
Immediately after the day-long run, Alex continued running by road from the National Sports Centre to South Bermondsey to complete her challenge by finishing on the pitch during halftime of Millwall Football Club’s home game against Leicester City.
Millwall FC’s stadium is situated in a part of London that benefits directly from a number of nearby foodbank centres, including the local branch in neighbouring Peckham.
