BROTHERS James and George Davison suffer from cystic fibrosis – but that won’t stop them competing in the Bupa Mini Great South Run.

James, six, and George, four, of Sarisbury Green, were diagnosed with the genetic disorder four years ago.

Now they will take up the 1.5km challenge on Saturday, October 27, in a bid to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, which supports patients and their families. Mum Sophie, who is competing in the 10-mile Bupa Great South Run the next day, said: ‘James and George are active, happy boys and are determined to run the 1.5km. George is excited about doing it dressed as Batman and James has decided he wants to wear a running vest.

‘They both want to help raise money for people who take tablets and do physio like them. I was inspired to sign up after helping out in the charity village last year. I was not a runner at all but I have well and truly got the running bug now.’
