Robin Harrison will celebrate coming to the end of his 365Run challenge by hosting a fundraising event.

People are being invited to take part in a 1k, 5k or 10k walk or run on November 25, which aims to swell the coffers of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.

Robin began running every day on November 27 last year, and is currently averaging more than six miles per day.

On some occasions he competes in events around the country while other days he pounds the paths of Horncastle, never doing less than 5k.

The fundraiser will be held on the Sandy Lane and Spa Trail junction from 10am.

Entry costs £10 for children and £12 for adults.

Although entries will be taken on the day, anyone interested is asked to email to secure a medal upon completion.

Robin recently took part in the Chester Marathon with Skegness and District RC clubmates Mark Sands and Phil Horton.

He set out to complete the marathon in 4 hrs 15 mins but smashed his target with a time of 4 hrs 13 mins, knocking a massive 1 hr 26 mins off his PB time.

This weekend saw Robin record another PB, this time at the Manchester Half Marathon.

The flat race is supported by a great crowd of onlookers and starts and finishes close to Old Trafford.

Robin knocked another six minutes off his PB.

He finished in 1:51.32 on day number 321 of his challenge.

Horncastle’s Rachel Lear contested the Birmingham Half Marathon on Sunday, raising money for the Altzheimer’s Society.

She is on her way to her £250 charity target and completed the race in 3:00.21.

Emma Marshall-Telfer, of Tattershall, didn’t let the cold and rain stop her from completing a gruelling marathon at the Spires and Steeples Challenge, over a trail of footpaths and bridleways from Lincoln to Sleaford this week.
