Anthony Taylor has raised nearly £4,000 for Tommy's since beginning the challenge with a half marathon in The Royal Parks in October 2018.

He then upped his game and moved on to full-blown marathons, finishing his first in April in London.

The 33-year-old is now seeking to "use his heartache to push through" a 31-mile run in Bath later this month, and finish off the challenge with a 62-mile run on September 7.

He said: "During the toughest times, I decided I was going to use my new-found enthusiasm for running as a welcome distraction and an opportunity to push myself physically and mentally, as well as raise money for a cause close to our hearts."

The fundraising continues until October, when Anthony hopes to reach more than £5,000.
