Father and son of local firm of Insolvency Practitioners, Griffin & King, recently ran the Chicago Marathon for Teenage Cancer. Tim and James Corfield are set to raise around £3,000 for the charity.
There were over 1.7m people lining the course cheering on the 45,000 runners.
James beat testicular cancer when he was 18 and has now run London, Berlin and Chicago to raise awareness and money.
Tim only put his name down for the Chicago marathon after a rash bet declaring ‘I could do that!’
Tim said after finishing ‘who’d have thought it. Up until six months ago I hadn’t done any running for twenty five years – it just shows, if you really want to do something, you can!’
