“After a long time of doing very little to look after myself mainly out of boredom during lockdown I started walking a couple of miles a day,” Will explained.

“That slowly increased to around five miles a day average. Then in January 2021, I started cutting out a lot of the unhealthy things and eating better, from January-May I’m around four and a half stone down and counting.

“In March the walking turned into running. Then I saw an advert online to run 100k in May for an MS charity, and as couple of family members have MS, it’s a cause close to my heart so I signed up.
