Greg Billingham has always been considered a character. He’s putting his gifts to good use. He ran the London Marathon to help the Children of Leukemia society.

Billingham wasn’t up on the winner’s stand. In fact, he knew from the start that he’d come in dead last. Billingham ran the marathon in slow motion.

He trained for months getting his steps down. Each step took about 5 seconds to complete. That’s a considerable task since the marathon is 26.2 miles long!

The winner came in under 2 hours, 7 minutes. Billingham was running 4.8 kilometers every ten hours. He finished one week after the event started.
