Inspirational Mark Vaz, 31, crossed the finish line at the Black Country Museum in Dudley, West Mids., after a massive 28 mile run.

Incredibly, he is only just over half way through his mammoth challenge of running 90 marathons in 90 days. Mark, who is completing his daily runs around his window cleaning round, has pounded pavements and paths across the UK for more than 1,500 miles in just over 265 hours so far. He hopes to raise £90,000 for a baby charity after his wife Tammy, 31, suffered seven miscarriages in eight years. Speaking after he completed his record-breaking 53rd marathon yesterday, Mark said the runs have left his body racked with pain. He has also lost a stone and a half since starting his epic fundraiser on July 7 because he cannot physically eat enough food to replace the 3,000 calories he is burning every day. Mark, from Penkridge, Staffs., said: “I’m really happy to have achieved this.”
