Pippa Middleton and her brother, James, will take part in a 56-mile marathon in the Swedish mountains. Pippa, the incredibly fit sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is heading back to the slopes after coming back from a ski trip in Switzerland with good friend, George Percy, the Duke of Northumberland. This time she's skiing for an actual cause.
Pippa and James will cross-country ski for 56 miles in a race called the Vasaloppet. About 15,000 others will be racing alongside the Middletons. The siblings have raked in almost $8,000 in sponsorships.
Considering the fitness levels of the Middletons, will they show everyone up at the marathon?
Pippa Middleton was in the news Saturday again after it was learned she and George Percy returned from a skiing trip in Geneva on February 3rd. Rumors are still circulating that the two are more than "platonic" friends. They met during their years at the University of Edinburgh. Reports surface on a recurring basis that she might eventually marry the Duke and become a DuchessÂ—just like her sister, Kate.
