A Menston couple are all set for a gruelling 42-mile marathon challenge in aid of charity.

Alison and Neil Bloor will be taking part in the To The Castle’ Ultra Marathon at Aberdovey in Wales as they look to raise funds for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

The pair decided to run this event in memory of Alison’s younger brother Peter Waring, who died unexpectedly aged 50 last year.

Alison and Neil compete on August 20. The pair have been regular marathon runners over the last few years and have completed plenty of events.
