British Man on Lockdown Runs Entire Marathon in His Backyard

Former professional javelin thrower James Campbell celebrated his 30th birthday in a unique way: he ran an entire marathon in his backyard and live-streamed it for charity, the AP reports. Campbell, who is on coronavirus lockdown in Cheltenham, England, ran 20-foot shuttles in his small backyard for just over five hours, and raised over $22,000 for the British National Health Service to help fight the pandemic. Campbell calculated he would have to do at least 7,000 shuttles in his yard to reach the 26.2 miles.
