Dozens of runners will be taking on a gruelling challenge in High Wycombe this weekend in a bid to raise cash for charities.

Members of the Your Pace or Mine running group will be attempting to run three miles on the hour, every hour, for either 12 or 24 hours – a mini or full ‘ultra’ distance of 36 or 72 miles.
