Thousands who ran the London Marathon at the weekend are still nursing sore muscles.
But one man is still making his way slowly round the route.
Policeman Tom Harrison, dubbed Mr Gorilla, is crawling through the capital on his hands and knees to raise money for conservation charity The Gorilla Organization.
Harrison has been doing 10 to12 hours each day before resting up at friends’ homes, and is expected to finish Thursday or Friday. The 41-year-old has a fundraising target of £2,000, which would pay for a team of rangers and supplies to protect gorillas in Eastern Congo for three months.
When Tom sets his heart to do something, he absolutely does it
He has already completed a series of big challenges for the charity, including the Great Gorilla Run and Tough Mudder. “I thought he was mad at first, but you know when Tom sets his heart to do something, he absolutely does it,” said Jillian Miller, director of The Gorilla Organization.
Several members of The Big Issue team also ran the London Marathon this weekend, raising more than £5,000 in total.
