Tim Jury completes 30 marathons in a year for Farm Africa

Today, on Christmas Eve, inspirational fundraiser and Sussex sheep farmer Tim Jury ran his 30th marathon of 2017 to raise funds for Farm Africa.

Tim set himself the incredible challenge of running 30 marathons in just one year to mark his 30th year of support for Farm Africa. 

His final marathon of the year took place today in his home town of Hastings, running alongside fellow members of his running club, the Hastings Runners.  After setting off bright and early, the marathoners finished their run on the town's seafront, where they were met by a crowd of supporters including family, friends, Farm Africa staff and a BBC South East reporter.
