An 11-year-old boy from Cumbria will cross the finish-line today in his challenge to complete 501 consecutive days of running.

Each day, Beau McKee has strapped on his running shoes to cover three miles a day, raising almost £30,000 for Macmillan.

In 2018, Beau started running daily in the month of January then later decided to run up until May 16.

The youngster was presented with a Pride of Sport award for his charity work.

The McKee family are well known for their fundraising efforts over the years - Beau's dad, Gary, raised more than £100,000 for Macmillan after completing 100 marathons in 100 days in 2017.

Macmillan is one of the biggest cancer charities offering providing specialist support to people affected by cancer.
