A man who lost his wife to breast cancer is set to embark on a 250-mile endurance challenge to raise money to help fight the disease.
Jim Hotchin (left), of Winter Hill Road, Maidenhead, will be one of about a dozen people walking, cycling and rowing a course between London and Oxford over five days to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Other participants will join the fundraisers to travel shorter distances as the group looks to raise more than £10,000 for the charity.
The 58-year-old will embark on his challenge on Wednesday, September 5, when he sets off on a journey which will include a 50-mile walk through London, a 110-mile cycle loop between Maidenhead and Oxford and a 90-mile row back down the Thames.
Jim said: "With this being an Olympic year we thought we'd make things a bit more challenging.
"We've done some tough challenges in the past but they've always been great fun, so this time we decided to set the bar even higher."
