A former Epworth schoolboy is entering the final stages of his training as he gears up for the London Marathon.

Mark Broster, is busy training for the gruelling 26 mile race through the streets of the capital on Sunday.

The former Epworth Church School and South Axholme pupil has already raised more than £1,600 for the National Osteoporosis Society.

His mum Anne Broster, is delighted that Mark has chosen the NOS as his nominated charity as she is very much involved with the organisation.

She has been a voluntary worker supporting and fundraising in North Lincolnshire for the charity for many years.

Mark has been updating his gruelling progress on his blog as he progresses towards the marathon distance. The course is 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

Approaching his 18 mile slow run on the Thames Tow Path, Hammersmith, Mark said: “The last slow run - the run was reasonably OK, for a long run. Fitted in couple of quick miles towards the end to test things out. Weather still cold but best it has been since training began.”
