Cancer patient in six marathons challenge
A 35-year-old man who has been diagnosed with bowel cancer has completed five of six marathons in six months.
Ben Ashworth, from Preston, who started his fundraising effort with a race in Blackpool, said he wanted to inspire his young children.
"I have three daughters and I want them to be proud of me and to know that my spirit wasn't dulled by having terminal cancer."
Mr Ashworth, who was a keen runner before his diagnosis, is hoping to raise money for several cancer charities with a fundraising campaign.
