Mountain bikers running half marathon in MIQ

From First Up, 5:59 am on 30 October 2020

A half marathon is an achievement in itself but what about completing it in a managed isolation hotel room?

Professional mountain bikers Charles Murray, Edward Masters, Brook Macdonald and Anton Cooper are just over the half way mark of their managed isolation after returning from the World Mountain Biking Championship in Austria.

They're running 21km in their rooms this Saturday to celebrate a year since Brook recovered from a serious spinal cord injury and to raise funds for the Burwood Spinal Unit and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

Brook told our reporter Louise Ternouth the idea came out of the blue from his team mate Eddy.
