MARK Jackson, from Timbercroft, WGC, will be running for the second year in a row, to raise money for the National Autistic Society. Mark's son, five-year-old Dylan, is autistic.

With the help of staff and regulars at the Six Bells pub in St Albans, Mark has so far raised more than £6,000 for the cause.

"I'd like to thank everyone at the Six Bells," said Mark, 28. "Last year was hard, but I'm not looking to beat last year's time or anything. I just hope I finish."

Mark added the National Autistic Society had given his family so much support, he wanted to give something back and raise awareness of the condition at the same time.
