A former soldier from Wiltshire injured by an IED in Afghanistan is getting ready for an 80 mile run to raise money for Walking With The Wounded, a charity that helps homeless veterans.
It may not be obvious but Olly Church's career in the army was brought to an abrupt halt after he stood on a Taliban IED in Helmand Province 10 years ago. He spent months in rehabilitation after his foot had to be rebuilt.
This Christmas he's running 80 miles in 24 hours straight - to raise money for former veterans.
The former Queens Royal Lancers Captain will leave Northampton tomorrow.
He and his team of 6 others will pass along canals and minor roads, through Milton Keynes and Oxford, before ending at his home in Shrivenham.
The run is in aid of Walking with the Wounded, a charity which aims to support wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women outside the military.
