RETIRED teacher Jan Barnes will head for Las Vegas for her 27th marathon to raise money in memory of her family dog, Truffle.

The 68-year-old, of Garland Close, Chichester, will be taking part in the Las Vegas Marathon to raise funds for Canine Partners.

Known as the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, the 26.2-mile course will take her through the streets and sights of Las Vegas.

Jan’s pet dog Truffle played a big part in her training for several marathons before dying about two months ago.
