Duncan continues to run "Moor" Marathons.

Duncan Roy is based in Ingleby Cross, North Yorkshire just on the edge of The North York Moors National Park. It's a great location for any would be athlete and Duncan certainly makes the most of the endless trails and footpaths on his doorstep to get his body in tip top shape for yet another Marathon challenge.

While many 20 something lads may see their ideal Sunday morning as a way to relax or perhaps recover from the night before, not so for Duncan. He is out and about early warming up for another gruelling training run across the moors. This is of no surprise to his neighbours who regularly see Duncan (or a glimpse of his florescent jacket) running in and out of the village on one of his many weekly runs or cycles.

No stranger to charity events and challenges that would push any athlete to the limit, Duncan has already recently completed the Great North Run in aid of Cancer Research, Cycled 100 miles from Osmotherely to York via Helmsely in aid of the Haiti Earthquake Appeal, made a gruelling crossing of the entire North York Moors completing the Lyke Wake Walk in under 24hours for Help for Heroes and now his latest challenge is the Edinburgh Marathon again to raise money and awareness for  Help for Heroes, a charity close to Duncan's heart.

When asked about his marathon fund raising exploits, Duncan commented:

"I love running, its great living so close to the National Park and I never get bored as there are so many different routes you can take. If I can raise money for some great charities while at the same time doing something I enjoy, then all the better"
