NEVER mind the London marathon – there are easier ways to complete a 26-mile run.
The Rainbow Centre, for youngsters with cerebral palsy, is hosting a marathon in instalments.
Anybody from able-bodied runners to those in wheelchairs can complete a 26-mile route over a number of weeks at the centre in Palmerston Drive, Fareham.
The first instalment was on Saturday.
Community and events fundraiser Julie Woodward said: ‘It was really good.
‘It’s incredible how quickly you can do those laps because you’re just walking around and talking.
‘We had a couple of people who did eight miles on the first day.
‘The important thing is anyone can do it.’
The mini-marathons take place from now until July 9 on Saturday mornings from 10am to noon and Wednesdays from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
The event is still open to anyone who wants to take part.
