Saddleworh runner tackles 24-hour epic challenge for charity

AN EPIC 24-hour Man v Hill Challenge was completed by local ultra-distance athlete Chris Webb to raise more than £1,100 for charity.

Chris, who is a member of fell running club, Saddleworth Runners, tackled a total of 25 ascents and descents over the period.

The challenge took him between Tanners Waterside Mill in Greenfield right up to the summit of Alphin Pike, which stands at 1,540 feet above the villages.

Chris was supported by fellow club members, friends, family and strangers alike, all in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the Stroke Association.

While many would now be resting tired legs, Chris is already out training for his next challenge.
