Eleven energetic employees from Plusnet are to take on a marathon challenge in aid of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

The runners from Plusnet, which is based in Sheffield, will run the Yorkshire Marathon in York on October 12.

Sales and retention advisor Julian Walshaw, who ran last year’s marathon in four hours and eight minutes, said he is looking forward to running again.

“I do love a challenge, so after last year’s fantastic experience I’m more than happy to put myself through it again and beat my personal best,” he said. “It’s a great charity this year so it’s a win for everyone.”

The team aims to raise at least £2,500 for the appeal, which supports charities for children and cancer. Visit
