'Marathon Man' ran 26 miles every day of 2022

Words by Abi Scaife

One man has just completed his goal of running a marathon every day of the year - for a very special reason.

One marathon EVERY DAY?!

That’s right, Gary McKee, aka Marathon Man, made the decision to run a marathon every single day of 2022 to raise money for Macmillan.

This was a huge undertaking but, despite everything, he rang in the New Year having completed his goal.

Wow, so why did he do it?

Gary had already performed some pretty amazing physical feats, including running 100 marathons in 100 days and 110 marathons in 110 days.

The money he raised will go towards helping Macmillan support cancer patients and their families - and as he managed to completely smash his fundraising goal of £1 million. That’s a pretty big deal.

You can still donate to his JustGiving page.

Well done, Gary!
