Members of Harleston Young Farmers Club and Harleston Countrysiders pushed themselves to the very limit last month as they completed an epic indoor marathon in aid of a Norfolk cancer charity.

The team has raised more than £500 for The Big C the time of going to press, after collectively travelling nearly 1,500 miles on treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines at their clubhouse over three gruelling days.

Helen Reeve said: “It was the first time in the club’s 77 years that a charity activity of this scale had taken place which was physically and mentally exhausting.

“Massive congratulations to everyone for coming together to help out with such a fantastic event.”
