Pippa Middleton competed in a 56 mile cross-country race?! Consider us royally impressed!

Kate Middleton's sister did just that on Sunday when she took part in Vasaloppet, a 56-mile cross-country ski marathon across Swedish mountains. So how'd she do? The Duchess of Cambridge's sibling completed the race in 7 hours, 13:36 minutes!

However, Pippa's ski run wasn't for sport: it was for charity!

Pippa, along with her brother James, who finished the race in 06:47:27, took part in the marathon to benefit Magic Breakfast, a charity that delivers free, healthy breakfast foods to hungry children at U.K. primary schools.

More than 15,800 competitors turned out for the race, and Pippa was the 412th woman to cross the finish line!

As of last Sunday, the charitable duo had raised £4,300 ($6,822) in pledges towards their completion of the marathon.

Vasaloppet is one of the world's oldest cross-country races.
