Two men from west Cumbria are planning quite a feat of endurance, to raise money for the cancer unit at their local hospital.
Colin Stables and Graham Thompson hope to run 300 miles from London to Maryport in nine days. Samantha Parker reports.
Friends Colin Stables and Graham Thompson are about to start a gruelling challenge which will see them run for more than six hours a day for nine days.
They're aiming to raise thousands of pounds for the Henderson Suite at the West Cumberland Hospital to support their work with cancer patients.
The duo have spent months training for the run which they start in London tomorrow and finish in Maryport on December 2nd.
The first three days of the challenge have flood warnings in the areas they are running.
The pair will cover a distance of more than 300 miles and have so far raised £1,200, they hope that figure will rise the closer they get to Maryport.
