Marathon ef­fort by run­ner Toby

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A MARATHON run­ner has com­pleted his 10th race in aid of a popular char­ity – rais­ing £20,000 over the years.

Toby Eyre, of Mi­nor Av­enue, Lyme Green, ran his tenth and fi­nal Lon­don Marathon in aid of the Rossendale Trust, on Hollin Lane, Sut­ton.

He com­pleted the im­pres­sive feat to help the trust in its work to care for adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

It was a bounce back to form for Toby, who last year was un­able to com­pete due to a se­ri­ous road ac­ci­dent.

He’s counted up his spon­sor­ship and has raised around £20,000 over the years.

Toby has raced in var­i­ous fancy dress cos­tumes and with his wife Claire on their hon­ey­moon in 2005.

Toby, a pro­fes­sional mo­tor­cy­cle in­struc­tor who owns County Biker Train­ing in Moss Lane, Macclesfield, said: “Over the years I’ve run dressed as Jack the Rip­per, Zorro, Gin­ger Spice, Voodoo Witch Doc­tor, and Evel Kn­evel three times.

“I’m grate­ful for all the spon­sor­ship I’ve re­ceived in aid of this very wor­thy lo­cal char­ity.”

The Rossendale Trust, which pro­vides sup­ported living and care to 58 adults, is cur­rently up­grad­ing its hor­ti­cul­ture project.
