Last year my Surrey604 colleague and ‘evil twin brother’ Daman Beatty ran and completed the full Surrey International World Music Marathon. While he ran, the silly guy live-tweeted, video blogged, and Skype-video conferenced us from his iPhone during the whole 42 km run. He sure got some funny looks, but I think he’s used to that!
For a guy who barely trained and didn’t even run at all for a month leading up to the event, we think he did alright at 4 hours, 55 minutes! Watch clips from his video above.
Daman’s good friends the CHCPB Surrey Pipe Band (featured in his run video) who performed along the way, show the race from their perspective last year in the video below.

Watch highlights below from last year’s inaugural event. You can catch Daman’s interview right after his completion of the race at the 1:26 mark.
