A vicar from the Channel Islands will run 12km in each of the 12 parishes of Jersey for 12 consecutive days.
According to the BBC, Rev Mark Barrett is undertaking the challenge in order to raise money for the disability charity Healing Waves and to improve the disability facilities at his church, St Andrew’s.
Rev Barrett wants to “raise awareness about access” for disabled islanders and also “make [St Andrew’s] church more welcoming and accessible for people of all abilities”.
Although the 144km (89.4 mile) challenge will push Rev Barrett physically and mentally, he has drawn strength from the examples of those battling disabilities in their everyday lives.
He told the BBC: “It's more endurance and psychological. I've been really inspired by friends of mine who have mobility issues and things, and for them just getting out of bed is way more of a challenge.
"To be able to use your legs and to go out and run is such a blessing and a privilege.”
