A Milton Keynes man who was hoping to complete 30 marathons in 30 days has had to stop running due to injury. But rather than give up on his charity challenge altogether, Charlie Wardle has found a novel way to keep going.
The 37 year old has enlisted the help of the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury who have loaned him a hand bike.
Charlie completed his first marathon using the hand bike in just under 9 hours. He had wanted to run the 26.2 mile course around Milton Keynes every day in June to raise £30,000 for Climb Your Mountain, a charity he founded to help people suffering from depression.
Charlie says he hopes to be able to run again soon and complete all the marathons one way or another.
