An amateur Jersey rugby side will run the most southerly marathon in the British Isles to try and raise £5000 for a local charity.
It is the first in a range of challenges set by Jersey Reds Athletic to fundraise for Friends of Jersey Oncology who support cancer patients and their families.
The Minquiers Marathon will take place on Sunday 28 February and see players collectively attempt to complete the 26.2 mile event, taking it in turns doing laps on the exposed sandbanks at low tide.
It will be a race against time as they battle the rising sea level.
Reds predict the marathon must be completed within 4.5 hours and a team of five forwards and five backs will alternate running the route.
They have already reached a third of their target, raising over £1700.
