An ambitious charity fundraiser hoping to raise £100,000 in 100 days is going for a double whammy over the next week.
Mike Chaldecott plans to run the Windsor half marathon on Sunday and the Paris 20k a week later to raise money for the charities Macmillan and CRASH.
The Macmillan cancer charity helped when Mike's father died and CRASH focuses on improving the buildings used by homeless people.
Mike is on day 59 of his 100 day plan and has already raised £44,942.
He will be just one of an expected 5,000 lining up at the Long Walk in the Great Park on Sunday at 1pm for the big Windsor event - then a week later, it is the next big challenge in Paris.
Also taking part in the Windsor event will be Fiona Devine, the mum whose charity the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service aims to build a children's hospice near Maidenhead.
