Marathon challenge reaches fundraising target

Athlete also receives message of support from boxer

A Manx athlete aiming to run 19 marathons in as many days has reached his fundraising target with nine days to spare.

Christian Varley's Just Giving page reached its £19,000 target this morning, and has since surpassed the £20,000 mark.

He's so far completed 10 marathons, and is due to finish the challenge next Tuesday.

He's also received a message of support from former world boxing champion Tony Bellew:

Recived this video this morning from my good friend Liam Doyle. Nice one Bomber Bellew for perking me up and making me laugh going into day 11 then. #CVfor19
