Steve Wingrove prepares for the marathon

CHINNOR’S Steve Wingrove is putting in the final tweaks to his training as he looks to complete a marathon for the first time.

He has applied to the ballot for the past five years and is now hoping he can go the distance in a weeks time.

He said: “Just finishing in the same day is my main goal, I just want to complete it, although it would be nice to be between four and five hours.”

Steve is running for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and has set himself a target of raising £1,000 for the charity – to help Steve visit www.virginmoneygiving.com/stevewingrove
