Beau Miles recently turned his marathon age and to celebrate, he ran a marathon. 


When Beau Miles ran 42km on his 42nd birthday, he was met with praise, and a little bit of criticism. 

You see, 42km is almost a marathon – but it’s about 195 metres short. So to set things right, Beau waited 71 days until he was 42.195 years old before running the distance all over again – and filming it this time. 

During his run, Beau retraces his history, forging his own route past childhood homes, schools, bush hideouts, and back into the present. Expect plenty of roadside bounty, a coupla sneaky pit stops, and a bit of trademark Beau Miles philosophising along the way.
