PEOPLE in Portsmouth are being challenged to row a marathon next month.

Cancer Research UK is staging its Great Row event, urging people to notch up 26.2 miles in stages or in one go over March.

And to back the effort, would-be rowers will have free access to Better Leisure centres – including the Better Gym at the Pompey Centre, Dickinson Road, Fratton – every Friday if they’ve signed up to the event.
