Chris Patterson: 52 marathons in 52 weeks – The Finale

Ultra Runner, Chris Patterson, has competed in races such as Marathon des Sables so is used to pushing his body to its limits. In 2018 he embarked on a mammoth personal challenge – to complete 52 marathons in 52 weeks. Here’s Chris’ final report…


I completed the final marathon of my 52 in 52 week challenge on Saturday 12th January, with 1 day to spare!

Due to injury complications earlier in the year I had to load the end of the challenge far heavier than I originally planned. I ran 7 in 10 days over the Christmas period, and a total of 12 in the final 4 weeks.

Every marathon I ran was an official race, the year went by in a bit of a blur! My fundraising page has raised well over £16,000 for Hope for Children and I was honoured to receive their fundraiser of the year award in October. I will be flying out to visit a live project this year to see first-hand the great work they do.
Thank you to everyone who donated and supported me, it’s made the whole year so worthwhile.


On that note, I’d like to thank Profeet for their fantastic support during the Challenge.
Their customised inner soles and footwear selection was an integral part of getting through the 52 weeks successfully. I can honestly say I had no issues with blisters or footwear discomfort this year. This makes such a difference when going through an intensive challenge such as this.
So Thank you.
Chris Patterson
