A SHIPLAKE College student will run seven marathons in seven days covering a distance of 184 miles.

Matt Godwin, 18, has set himself the aim of raising £1,000 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital charity. He will set off on Monday from the source of the Thames in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier.

Matt is from Surrey but is a boarder at Shiplake, and is currently taking his A-levels. He said: “I’ll be running alone, although my parents are acting as my support vehicle and I will see them each evening when I stop at my destination.

“If I need anything in the middle of the day, I do have the option of phoning them – but I’m hoping I won’t need to!”
