Marathon man Razzak Mirjan is gearing up for a double whammy in Rome and London.
The 22-year-old Windsor resident who attended St George's School, is no stranger to multi challanges. He raised money for spinal injury sufferers and war orphans in the Middle East when he ran in two London marathons and one in Beirut.
That was in 2008 and 2009. Now Razzak, who lives in Springfield Road will support the Everyman charity for research into male cancers by running next month's London Marathon and this weekend's one in Rome.
He said: "Training has been largely successful, apart from an achilles injury and I am hopeful for a new personal best. Fundraising has been going really well and the total is approaching £2,500."
He has already organised a successful auction for which he got David Ford from television's Real Deal Antiques Show to do the honours, raising £1,000.
