Adrian Campbell is ready for his 11th marathon.

IT WILL be Seaford town councillor Adrian Campbell’s 12th marathon when he takes part in the Beachy Head event on October 27.

The long distance runner will be raising funds through sponsorship for the Seaford mayor’s charities for this year; the Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group and the St James’ Trust.

Adrian said: “I have run 11 marathons to date and this will be the third time I have run the Beachy Head Marathon.

“It’s my favourite one as it’s all off-road and very scenic, albeit very hilly!”

The Beachy Head marathon was voted one of the top ten marathons by runnersworld.co.uk and attracts around 1,750 runners.

Starting at St Bede’s School in Eastbourne, it returns to the finishing line at Beachy Head road.

Cllr Campbell, who runs for the Seaford Striders club, raised £600 in sponsorship for the Mayor’s charity, WAVES Family Support Service, in 2011 whilst running the Berlin Marathon.

Anyone wishing to sponsor him for this October’s race can contact Paula Woolven, mayor’s secretary, at Seaford Town Council, on 01323 894870 or email paula.woolven@seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk

The St James’ Trust in Seaford, runs services and for old people and those with disabilities. Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group aims to provide enrichment to the lives of children with Down’s Syndrome and special needs, as well as their families.
