Barnsley Trio Set For Paris Marathon

Wednesday January 22 2014

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

THREE Barnsley men are all set for the Paris Marathon in April - and they're running to raise money for youngsters with cancer.

Pogmoor trio Jonathan Scattergood, Joe Rippon and Paul Youle, all 26, are ready for the 26.2-mile run in the French capital after a rigorous training regime.

All three have done work for Children with Cancer UK before, but they're set to raise even more for the charity which has raised over £150m to help young cancer sufferers.

Jonathan said: "I'm sure everyone will agree that no one should have to go through the turmoil cancer brings, let alone a child.

"Children with Cancer UK works to fund research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer.

"They also support children and families going through the unfortunate circumstances the disease can bring.

"We've done a half marathon before but this is by far the hardest challenge we've taken on."
