Two runners have set out from their office in Leeds at the start of a challenge to run the equivalent of seven marathons in seven days. Neil Jones and Chris Lawrence were joined by colleagues for the first leg of their journey from their office in Weetwood on their way to the Royal Armouries.
The pair, who both work for Bupa, are hoping to raise £50,000 for Cancer Research UK between now and 9 August when they are due to arrive at their company's head office in London. To find out more about their challenge log on to their page on the Just Giving website.
