HE’S back on the road again!

Scarborough runner Graeme Adams is ready to pound the pavements for charity in a gruelling marathon challenge.

Mr Adams, of Tindall Street, will tackle the Great Manchester Run on Sunday May 20, to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.

However, the 43-year-old, who will also take part in the Great North Run in September, revealed his marathon effort came after a long break from the sport.

He said: “It is the first time I will have done 10km in about 30 years.

“I ran a lot when I was younger but only took it up again seriously at the start of this year as part of a new fitness regime.

“However, my training has gone well and I haven’t had too many prob- lems.

“I have already ran the distance in my training and come the day of the race I know I will be able to do it.”

Mr Adams added he had chosen to support St Catherine’s Hospice because of the care it provided his father.
