Running three miles every day for a year in aid of Cystic Fibrosis
Dominic Rees is running at least three miles a day, the London Marathon and the Maidenhead Half Marathon for Cystic Fibrosis

A dad-of-two is taking on a marathon challenge to raise money for charity.

Dominic Rees, of St Margaret's Road, Pinkneys Green, has committed to run three miles, every day, for a year.

The IT services worker started his challenge on September 4 and will also run the London Marathon and cap the year off by running the Maidenhead Half Marathon.

Dominic is hoing to raise £3,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, which is close to the family's heart as it affects their 15-month-old goddaughter and niece, Chloe.

He said: "It has got past the point where my joints ache, it's more of a mental challenge now.

"I've had to get myself going to run over Christmas and New Year, but most of all running with a heavy cold, which was an absolute killer.

"Combining this with traditional marathon training is hard work, as I no longer have any rest days.

"I'm still required to complete long runs every Sunday, which makes life interesting on Monday."

Dominic has racked up more than 600 miles so far and still has more than 200 days to go.
