Ten marathons in ten days for charity in memory of his sister-in-law:
Devonport’s Captain of the Base Colonel Simon Chapman pictured starting his amazing test of mental and physical stamina from the Base.
Today Simon is starting his fourth marathon today - from RNAS Yeovilton and finishing at Sturminster Marshall near Blandford in Dorset.
He is aiming to run a total of 240 miles - finishing in London on Sunday where he will run the London Marathon as his final leg.
He had already raised a fantastic £6,000 with the support of the staff of HMS Drake making donations and staging charity events.
The funds will go to the Brain Tumour Charity and Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
The Royal Marine explained: “It is ten years since my sister-in-law Susanna lost her brave battle with a brain tumour and I thought this would be a fitting way to raise fresh funds for the Brain Tumour Charity.”
