TWO brothers have completed an epic running challenge to raise money for a spinal foundation.

Mike and Gareth Evans ran 87 miles in three days from Overton Hill to Ivinghoe Beacon at the weekend.

They did it for Mike's fiancee, Lucy Court, who had a snowboarding accident in February and has been receiving treatment at the Stoke Mandeville National Spinal Injuries Centre in Aylesbury.

They raised £4,000 for The Stoke Mandeville Spinal Foundation, which is a charity established to promote research into how to improve the medical and life care of the 40,000 people living with spinal injury in the UK.
