After more than 650 miles on the road, Eddie is on the final day of his epic 27-marathons-in-27-days challenge in support of Sport Relief. From Mthatha (the birthplace of Nelson Mandela) to the finishing line in Pretoria, Cloud9Media documented Eddie’s incredible journey every step of the way. Series Producer Steve Maud worked with Director of Photography Aaron Witchard to deliver daily content for BBC3’s new exclusively online channel on behalf of Lion TV.

Filming, editing and uploading over 100 short films in less than a month required absolute focus, logistical precision, and not a little stamina of our own. Eddie’s run captured the public’s imagination and raised more than £1 million for Sport Relief.
