A determined Hatfield man walked 51 miles in a gruelling overnight charity challenge, despite having to use an artificial leg.

Kevin Brennan, 52, of Millwards consumed more than 28,000 calories in 16 hours on a treadmill at the Fit4less gym in Town Centre, Hatfield over Friday and Saturday.

Kevin, whose leg was amputated four years ago and who has completed several other tough physical challenges, told the WHT: “The pain on my poor little stump was nothing I have experienced before,

“I did not really get tired as the pain was too intense.

“And was it worth it? - damn right it was.”

His challenge raised about £200 for Crohn’s & Colitis UK, as his girlfriend suffers from Crohn’s disease.

Kevin added: “I want to thank all that turn up to show their support, and a big thankyou to the [gym] boss Steve Bull and his staff for looking after me.”
