Pamela Anderson - Pamela Anderson Joined By Brother For Nyc Marathon

Actress Pamela Anderson turned Sunday's (03Nov13) New York City Marathon into a family affair by recruiting her brother to run with her.

The former Baywatch babe laced up her sneakers to take part in the 26.2-mile (42.16-kilometre) race through the streets of the Big Apple as she raised money for charity, but she didn't do it alone - she was joined by her sporty sibling, Gerry.

Anderson, who announced her intentions to run in August (13), left her training a little late - in September (13), she confessed she had yet to actually start pounding the pavement, instead using her elliptical and Stairmaster machines at home to build up her stamina.

She said, "I really haven't attacked the running thing. I've never been a runner. I've never even run across the street hardly before."

However, Anderson managed to complete the feat in five hours, 41 minutes and three seconds to claim her finishing medal - and she proudly showed off the award on her page.

She also gave her sibling a shout out, writing, "So proud of my brother Gerry. Thank G. For running next to me today - love you lots (sic)".

Anderson managed to raise more than $75,000 (£50,000) for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization's The Long Run for Haiti campaign, boosting donations to Sean Penn's charity, which was set up in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake.
