The marathon-themed 1.9m x 2m running shoe sculpture was created especially for Sussex’s only children’s hospice, Chestnut Tree House. Chestnut Tree House’s aim is to recruit 300 runners, one for each child the charity currently cares for.
The sculpture will remain at the Black Rock Site of the Brighton Sand Sculpture Festival on Maderia Drive until the end of September.

He calls it "joggling" - running and juggling at the same time - and Kevin Williams plans to do it for the entire 26 miles of the Brighton Marathon.

The damage to his brain was so severe, Kevin had to relearn to live from scratch. His only asset a basic muscle memory.
We caught up with him training on Brighton seafront. You can sponsor him here.
