But its his own efforts that will be under the spotlight when he takes part in the SIG Sheffield Half Marathon in support of St Lukes Hospice.

 

The BBC Radio Sheffield favourite is a patron of Sheffields only hospice and when he heard there were St Lukes spaces available for the April 6 half marathon, he decided to do both himself and the charity some good by signing up.

Sports commentator Seth Bennett will put his money where his mouth is when he competes in the Sheffield Half Marathon.

The BBC Radio Sheffield broadcaster will run the 13.1-mile course in aid of St Luke’s hospice.

Seth, who is a patron of Sheffield’s only hospice, said: “I have never been a runner, but the challenge of trying to do the Sheffield half marathon is something I want to try to conquer.

“The furthest I have ever run before is about three miles so it is going to be a big push to step up to ensure I complete the race.

“When you are pounding the pavements in rubbish weather you have to be clear in your mind why you are doing it.

“For me knowing that every penny I raise will make a huge difference has helped get me through the tough moments and hopefully I will be able to complete what will be the biggest physical challenge of my life.”

Fran Morley of St Luke’s said: “St Luke’s is one of the official chosen charities that the marathon is supporting in 2014 and we’d like as have as many people as possible to run for us. Please join us and Seth on the start line.”
