Milestone for marathon man
2:10pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
HAMPSHIRE’S very own marathon man has reached yet another running milestone.
After running the Bournemouth Marathon earlier this month, Jim Whitmarsh has run his 100th marathon for Eastleigh Running Club – bringing his total to 110.
The 54-year-old’s first marathon was in memory of his ten-month-old nephew Michael Rafferty, who died of cot death, and ever since he has raised more than £25,000 for various charities.
His running achievements last year saw him awarded a Daily Echo Hampshire Heroes award.
