Stuart is to run the half Marathon soon after running the London Marathon & then a second Great North Run in September.

Stuart, who works as a Sales Director in ,  said:
Cold weather has hampered training with blizzards & icy conditions but Stuart is still on schedule to complete his training program with a 3 hour run planned for Sunday this week.

If you’re passing on Saturday please come along and say hello & help to support this much loved local charity.

He is raising money for Henshaws in Harrogate, a charity supporting people with sight loss and a range of disabilities.

Stuart said:

I am running for Henshaws because whilst a pupil at Harrogate Grammar School in the late 70’s I was involved with Harrogate talking newspaper.

Henshaws is a charity for visually impaired people so it is a continuing theme which is close to my heart.

Henshaws mantra is about people exceeding expectations so there is an affinity there for me to exceed my own expectations to achieve this challenge & to help others along the way.
