ED­DIE IZ­ZARD’S MARATHONS FOR MAN­DELA

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

In 2009, Bri­tish co­me­dian Ed­die Iz­zard ran 43 marathons in 51 days around Bri­tain for char­ity. Clearly it wasn’t painful enough. Now he’s try­ing 27 marathons in 27 con­sec­u­tive days as a homage to Nel­son Man­dela’s 27 years of in­car­cer­a­tion. Iz­zard’s plan is to doc­u­ment Man­dela’s his­tory in South Africa by stop­ping at the places that mat­ter most to Man­dela. In part one of this twopart se­ries, Iz­zard is armed with wise­cracks and tongue- in- cheek nar­ra­tion, but his phys­i­cal prepa­ra­tion has been light on. Will he make the dis­tance?
