Comedian Eddie Izzard’s Oswestry run-through


whereintheworldAdvertizer reporter David Lawson caught up (but only just) with comedian and actor Eddie Izzard last week, as he ran from Oswestry to Chirk as part of his incredible 30 marathons in 30 days challenge for Sport Relief.

Despite being half way through his 15th marathon in as many days, Eddie said he was greatly enjoying the area’s countryside, which was helping take his mind off the painful feet and legs.

EDDIE IZZARD RUN 5“This is something I believe we all have in us to do,” he explained, “For centuries, people around the world have run like this for days to hunt food and it’s in our genes. If for example war broke out tomorrow and our survival depended on it I feel we would all find the capacity.”

Having stopped off in Oswestry, Eddie was heading on through Chirk towards Wrexham and the end of another gruelling 30mile day, being filmed for Sport Relief later in the year and raising money and awareness along the way.
