A man who was signed up for the virtual London Marathon this year ended up completing the gruelling 26-miles in his garden after catching Covid-19 just a week before the big day.
Jordan Lancaster, a member of March triathlon club and March AC has been trying to get a place in the London Marathon since his 18th birthday.
This year, on his 26th, he gained a spot for the virtual London Marathon.
Seven days before he was due to complete it, he caught Covid-19 and had to isolate in his Ramsey home with his girlfriend.
Not wanting to miss out, Jordan completed the first 16 miles around his garden before switching to running up and down his living room.
