BACKYARD MARATHON | I Ran 2,000 Laps of My Garden And Here’s What Happened…

8th April 2020

The Running Channel’s Anna was supposed to be running the London Marathon this month however, as with so many running races around the world, it was postponed. Not one to let a hurdle get in the way of a challenge, to put her training to good use and secure her “medal”, as well as raise money for The World Health Organisation’s Solidarity Response Fund, Anna has taken on the challenge of running a marathon in her back garden.

Watch as she attempts the backyard marathon challenge, taking you through her marathon prep, and DIY event organisation.
