Eddie Izzard is today running for Zagreb, Croatia as part of the British comic’s charity challenge of running 31 marathons in 31 days.
Today marks day 13 of Izzard’s ‘Make Humanity Great Again’ campaign in which the comedian runs a marathon (42 kms) each day on a treadmill, followed by delivering a stand-up gig streamed from London.
The ‘Make Humanity Great Again’ campaign is raising money for charities supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable people.
Each marathon is themed around a different European or world city and supporters and fans are asked join in on the challenge by watching the event online, running together live (and ‘virtually’) in cities across the continent, joining the audience for the daily comedy shows, and donating to raise funds for charities.
