London, May 3 (ANI): A granny has entered the record books after she completed 27 consecutive fund raising marathons.

The 63-year-old grandma, Rosie Swale Pope MBE, ran for the final step in her toiling 707-mile journey.

Swale was "tired but very happy" when she crossed the finish line in Tudor Square, in her hometown of Tenby, in west Wales.

"Although I am actually 63 doing something like this makes me feel as though I am really 36. It was fantastic. I crossed the finish line in Tudor Square, in Tenby, and it was like a dream," Swale said.

"I think the main thing is to show people that they should reach out to do what they want to do. Maybe you can't always get there but you should always reach out," she added.

The 27-day race schedule took Swale from Bristol to London and from Tunbridge Wells to Bury St Edmunds, reports Sky News.

The money raised from the races will be donated to Ty Hafan children's hospice in Cardiff and Helen and Douglas House in Oxford.

Once Swale achievement is officially confirmed, she will become the first woman ever to run so many consecutive marathons. (ANI)
