Chatteris man Alex Ashley, 25, has set himself the challenge of completing this Sunday’s Chicago Marathon in four hours.

Mr Ashley is hoping to beat the 4hrs and 19 mins he clocked in last year’s London Marathon. He said: “I am looking forward to the experience of running around Chicargo. I’m hoping to do it in four hours or under. In training I have picked up an injury so hopefully adrenaline will take me round.”

He is raising money for Magpas Helimedix via www.virginmoneygiving.com/
