John Ryman is running the equivalent of from his home in Whiteley to Lands End and then to John O' Groats - a staggering 1,076 miles.

His year long challenge means he needs to average 3 miles a day.

Poppy, who he and his family adopted two years ago from Mount Noddy, will be along for some of his runs.

He has plotted his route on the map and he will be sending us monthly updates on his progress. You can help cheer him on and help him reach his ££750 target by going to his appeal page.

Or why not turn your weekly runs into a virtual challenge to help us?
