90 Marathons in 90 Days

Mark 4 blog

What do you do when you’ve finished 53 marathons in 53 days breaking a world record? If you’re Mark Vaz.. You keep on running!

The 31-year-old window cleaner broke a world record after becoming the first man to run 53 marathons in consecutive days to fundraise for the charity Tommy’s after his wife sadly suffered multiple miscarriages. Since he began his challenge in Wolverhampton on 7th July, he has run 26 miles every day – while still completing his window-cleaning round.

Tommy’s are a charity that help fund research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage and provide information for parents-to-be and at the time this blog was published, Mark had run 67 marathons and raised over £3,500 for the charity.

Mark’s running has resulted in him losing a stone and a half because he cannot eat enough food to replace the 3,000 calories he is burning a day, and has completed routes in London, Essex, Cornwall, Wales, Staffordshire and across the West Midlands.. But he is not stopping! In fact, he intends to carry on until he has run 90 marathons in 90 days!

Mark said “I’m really happy to have achieved this. You won’t believe the pain I’ve had to go through so far. I’ve picked up an awful lot of injuries. But I kept going because I’m determined to reach my goal and raise as much money as I can.

He added “It’s great to have a world record but the charity is the most important thing.”

You can support Mark via his Virgin Money Giving page.

    This is a great report about Mark Vaz and his 90 marathons in 90 days challenge. I’ve run with him a few times and I can’t keep up!
