Lewis Weatherburn, 27 and Jonny Littlewood, 25, from Norwich, will be attempting to run 96 miles from Milngavie to Fort William in Scotland in just three and a half days.

The pair are aiming to raise £2000 for the Big C, Norfolk’s cancer charity that helps patients and families in Norfolk & Waveney.

Mr Weatherburn, said: “Fortunately, we have not directly been affected by cancer, we both work at the NNUH as physiotherapists and have seen the inspiring work that the Big C have helped to fund.”

They will head up north in May 2019 with a target of running just over one marathon every day.
