Eddie Izzard in Potters Bar for final marathon challenge


Comedian Eddie Izzard is gearing up for the final leg of a mammoth marathon challenge in Potters Bar today (Tuesday).

The funnyman, 47, will complete an incredible 43 marathons in just 52 days when he runs from the Furzefield Centre in Mutton Lane to Trafalgar Square in London today, all in aid of Sports Relief.

Reporter Kelly-Ann Kiernan, who is currently at the Furzefield Centre, said: “Eddie is on good form.

“He’s currently having his poorly feet strapped and receiving a massage in the entrance way.”

Eddie is due to set off at 11.30am accompanied by paralympian Danny Crates, long jumper Jade Johnson athlete and wheelchair basketball player Ade Orogbemi.

From Eddie’s Twitter:
“Leaving Potters Bar area at 11.30am sharp. Heading to Stratford East and then in to Trafalgar Square. Should be there between 4pm
and 4.30pm.”
