Men's captain Liam Butler and coach Grant Stefan Chapman will start the run on Saturday, July 24 and aim to cover 1,100 miles and 90,000 feet of ascent over 31 days - averaging 38 miles a day.

The duo, who are being supported by their fellow Royston Runners, have so far raised more than £500 for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Service, which is the club's charity.
