WELL-KNOWN poultry consultant David Broxton has completed three hilly marathons in three days in support of charity Children with Cancer.

Mr Broxton, who works closely with Preston-based independent Gafoor, completed the challenge last week, running more than 80 miles and climbing 12,874 feet over three consecutive days.

He is close to hitting his £5,000 funding target for charity Children with Cancer.

Like most organised sporting events this year, it was held virtually, with Mr Broxton hitting the trails from Rivington, just north of Bolton.

He told Poultry.Network that, while he had taken on lots of endurance challenges over the years, finishing a marathon and knowing you had another the next day was a daunting prospect.

A spokesman for Gafoor said: “We would like to congratulate Dave on a fantastic-fund raising effort!”
