Barnstaple man Ben Brewer is hoping to run the equivalant of five marathons - in just 24 hours.
A BARNSTAPLE optician will be setting off on an epic 130-mile run this evening, leaving from Barnstaple Square.
Ben Brewer, who is also a well known musician in the area, is hoping to run from Barnstaple to Bristol – the equivalent of five marathons – in 24 hours.
In January the Gazette reported Ben was running the five-marathon run in a bit to raise £500 for Vision Aid Overseas.
Friends and family will be seeing Ben off from the Square at 8pm. To donate online visit www.justgiving.com/benonfoot.
