Marathon man Jamie McDonald from Gloucester completes epic run across United States of America

Jamie McDonald is known as Adventureman

A charity fundraiser from Gloucester has completed his epic run across the United States of America.

Jamie McDonald - dressed as his alter ego Adventureman - set out to complete 210 marathons, covering nearly 6,000 miles, totally unaided.

He began his run last April in Cape Alava, in Washington on the far west coast of America.

His finished the challenge in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

After suffering with a rare spinal condition syringomyelia and other health issues, as a child Jamie has raised thousands of pounds for sick children around the world.

His goal is to ensure no child goes without treatment they need but can’t access or afford.

In 2015 he ran 5,000 miles across Canada, raising £250,000 for children's charities.

Jamie spent the first nine years of his life in and out of hospital, when, finally, against the odds, his symptoms eased, allowing him to slowly become more active.

He was treated at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London.

He was named as the Pride of Britain ‘Fundraiser of the Year’ for the West in 2014 for his effort.

Jamie has set up the Superhero Foundation, a charity that grants money to families for treatment not otherwise available on the NHS.

In the UK, Jamie aims to raise £250,000 from his Super US Run with 100% of donations going towards Superhero Foundation.
