Story

The man on the left is Pheidippides. In 490 bc he ran 26.2 miles to Athens to report the Greek victory over the Persians at Marathon. Then he dropped dead. His time is not recorded.

This year I ran iin the London Marathon, on behalf of Redress, a charity that campaigns on behalf of victims of torture throughout the world. Torture is on the rise and Redress does brilliant work for victims and against torturers. Visit their website on www.redress.org for more information
