No wonder it took him 11 years to complete (started running it 89):D

Only took him 8hours plus,and he bettered five or so others a lot younger than himself.
I hope he raised a lot of funds.

Excellent work.

I saw him on the news the other day - apparently he started running again to get over the death of his wife and son.

Sad but certainly inspirational... I'd be surprised if I even reached 89, let alone take up running for 11 years beyond that.
