Sam Harper Brighouse, who was 23-years-old, collapsed around 16 miles into the run in April. The coroner recorded a verdict of misadventure.

The runner was originally believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest.

Sam was running the marathon to raise money for the Arms Around The Child charity which supports Aids orphans. Donations are still being made and have now reached over £33,000.
