Two brothers from Swindon, Mark and Ian Kenna, are gearing up for the gruelling challenge of running three marathons during April in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The pair have been working over the past three years to get themselves in shape, with their healthier lifestyles resulting in shedding a combined 20 stone and have now decided to run the Bath Half, Brighton and London marathons on behalf of Cancer Research UK in memory of their aunt Mary Parsons.
Mark and Ian have set a fundraising target of £5000, with a black tie event to be held at The Village Hotel in Shaw Ridge on Saturday 2 April.
Tickets are still available, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries.
This will include a three course meal, entertainment and a charity auction with items such as a signed England Rugby shirt from Sir Clive Woodward and a vacuum cleaner from the James Dyson Foundation going under the charity hammer.
Most recently, the pair announced that they will not only
be taking on the task of the 2.5 marathons already planned, but have also signed up to compete in an ultra marathon; Race to the Stones. They will be running 50km per day (31 miles) which is further than any marathon, again in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The brothers are well into their tough training regime and have been posting regular updates to their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/kennabrothers
