Ashford teen runs for Asthma

By Alicia Lloyd

Nicholas Gibb from Ashford is running the Brighton Marathon 2017 in a bid to raise money for the charity Asthma UK.

Having taken part in marathons before, this isn’t something new to Nicholas.

He said: “I’m doing the run as I’ve recently done 5k’s and 10k’s.

“For those who know me taking on this marathon is a challenge for me. I have a half marathon planned during my training plan too.

I have chosen Asthma UK as asthma affects so many people within the UK.”
