Mr kirk is taking part in three challenges over the next year, all in support of Epilepsy UK.

Mr Kirk said, “On the back of a funny year I wanted to get some events booked in to keep me motivated. At the same time, this will hopefully enable me to raise some decent money for a cause that is close to my family’s heart.”

Mr Kirk will be competing in the Dukeries 40 miler in May, the Robin Hood 100 in September and the London Marathon next year.

You can find out more about this amazing challenge and details of how to donate on his fundraising page.
