Eastbourne man runs through the night in two-day charity challenge

An Eastbourne man has taken on a running challenge which has seen him running throughout the night to raise money for a mental health charity.

Mark Phillips completed the challenge last weekend and has raised around £1,300 for the Mental Health Foundation.

Mark called the fundraiser the 4x4 Challenge and it involved him running four miles every four hours for 48 hours – the equivalent of nearly two whole marathons in two days and a total of 48 miles.

There is still time to support Mark by making a donation to the charity via his Just Giving page here.

Mark decided to support the Mental Health Foundation because the past year has been tough for many people; physically, financially and most of all mentally.
