Three friends are running marathons to raise money for a charity that provides support for renal patients in Norfolk.

Jacqueline Lake, who is the Norfolk Coroner, Charlie Harwood and Lloyd McMurtary have already run several this year.

Mrs Lake said: “Charlie and I have completed the Peddars Way Ultra (48 miles) and Marriott’s Way marathon. Charlie completed 100 miles and Lloyd 70 miles at Enduroman in May and I ran the Paris marathon in April.

“We have all completed the Thetford forest marathon and two marathons at Barrow, Bury St Edmunds.

“Charlie and I are aiming to complete the Norfolk Coastal Path on June 10 (60 miles), and then it’s 10 marathons in 10 days from June 29 to July 8 at Barrow.”

They are also hosting a race night at Swaffham Golf Club on October 7 and will be holding raffles throughout the year to raise money for the Norfolk Renal Fund.
