A Chorley man will be running the 69-mile length of Hadrian’s Wall this weekend in aid of leukaemia and lymphoma research.

Dave Noble will be running the ultra-marathon, The Wall, in memory of his dad who died from leukaemia 27-years ago at the age of 35.

The Wall is organised by adventure sports company Rat Race.

It follows 69 miles of Hadrian’s Wall country between Carlisle Castle and Newcastle Gateshead Quayside over a mixed-terrain route that incorporates both on and off-road sections.

The run starts at 1,000-year-old Carlisle Castle on Saturday and follows the stunning countryside of Cumbria and Northumberland, finishing on Sunday.
