The editor of The Diabetes Times will be running 14 miles in June to raise funds for the InDependent Diabetes Trust (IDDT).

The 33-year-old, from Market Harborough, is in training ahead of the half marathon, which takes place on Saturday, June 6, along the disused railway line between the towns, which is now the Brampton Valley Way.

He said: “The IDDT work tirelessly in the name of people with diabetes, helping to make their lives easier. I am a dedicated supporter and am proud to be taking on this challenge. I’m hoping to smash the target set by the IDDT.”

The charity is encouraging people to walk, run or cycle during the weekend of June 6 to raise funds.
