Greater Manchester Marathon 2014

Thousands of runners are taking part in the 2014 Greater Manchester Marathon.

Student to 'jump' Manchester marathon on pogo stick

A student is attempting to complete the Greater Manchester Marathon today on a pogo stick.

Jack Sexty, 24, will jump around the route and if he goes the distance he will go into the history books as the first man to complete a marathon on a pogo stick.

Jack is hoping to raise £2,000 for Alzheimer's Research UK.

A close relative of mine is unfortunately battling Alzheimer's disease so Alzheimer's Research UK is a charity which resonates with me and my family.
