Fundraiser runs between over 250 London Underground stations to raise cash for cancer charity

A FUNDRAISER has run between more than 250 London Underground stations to collect cash for a cancer charity.

Ray Wise, 56, started earlier this year by jogging the Victoria Line from Brixton to Walthamstow on the spur of the moment.


He then decided to run each of the 11 Tube lines in turn as closely as he could.

Ray completed the 249-mile task at Epping Station on the Central Line this month, having run past nearly all of the Tube’s 272 stations.

His final run took him just over seven hours.

The effort has seen him run five ultra­marathons, completing the Bakerloo, Central, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria and Waterloo & City lines.

The school IT manager from Tottenham, North London, has raised £2,602 for the Royal Marsden hospital, where two of his friends were treated.

One was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2016 and another with breast cancer in 2020.

Ray said: “It was all a bit of a spur of the moment decision.

“It’s been a brilliant experience and one that I’ll be able to look back on with all the selfies I’ve taken at the different stations.

“It’s been really good fun. I would not change a thing.”
