Marathon man, Ben Ashworth, will tackle his second of six marathons on Sunday.

The dad of three from Broadgate in Preston was diagnosed with bowel cancer in March 2012 and set himself the challenge of completing six marathons in aid of the Rosemere Unit at Royal Preston Hospital and three other charities to show their young girls Skye, nine, Isobel, four and Heidi, 18 months, how an illness like cancer doesn’t get in the way of living life and realising your dreams

Ben finished the Blackpool Marathon on April 6 in five hours and 35 minutes, and as part of his training on Sunday May 11, the 35-year-old completed the Blackpool 10k with some friends and his lovely wife Louise

The second of his marathon stints will take place at Lake Windermere in the Lake District.
