Cornwall's Marathon Man
8:00am 26th August 2013
A Cornish fundraiser is running ten marathons in ten days.
Andy Jukes from Praze-An-Beeble is planning to run the whole of the Cornish coast path, to raise money for Children's Hospice South West.
He is also looking for other people to take part on sponsored shorter stretches in September.
Andy said: "Whether it's for a mile, five miles, ten miles, the whole day, just come and join in or just come and support along the way. These days are long days. We're all going to need the encouragement, the support and the help just to push us on.
"You don't run as fast on the coastpath. You pace yourself a lot more, you take it a lot steadier. You walk up a lot of the hills because you can't physically run up them and even some of the downhills, you can't physically run them because they're just too steep. But at the end of the day, a lot of it is pure mental strength."
