I will attempt to run (on a treadmill) 31 marathons, and then perform 31 stand-up shows, in 31 days, raising funds for charity as I go.

Well, I did it… 32 marathons and 31 stand up gigs in 31 days

Well, we did it… 31 marathons and 31 shows in 31 days - including a double marathon on the last day.

In total I ran 1,350 kilometres or 844 miles and it took more than 200 hours.

I lost a toenail and chunk of tooth!

Together, we raised over £300,000 (over €342 000 or $411 000) to support some amazing charities. And they do great work all around the world.

People ask me why I did it.
Well, ultimately it’s because I believe in fighting for a fair chance in life for everyone.

That is what ‘Make Humanity Great Again’ is really all about.

You can see a roundup of the challenge at and people can still make a donation. 

And, I hope you feel feel proud of what you’ve done.
