Officers from South Yorkshire Police are taking part in a charity challenge in memory of a murdered constable.
More than 80 members of the county’s police force are supporting dad Bryn Hughes, whose daughter PC Nicola Hughes was shot dead alongside colleague Fiona Bone by killer Dale Cregan in Greater Manchester last year.
The officers will be running two miles a day for 125 days as part of the event, called Run To Remember, before Bryn sets off on the North Pole Marathon, in which participants cross Arctic ice floes.
Sarah Malia, Run to Remember co-ordinator for South Yorkshire Police, said: “It has been a struggle fitting the miles in and keeping going but I am confident we will complete the 250 miles.”
Bryn, from Huddersfield, is helping Victim Support, Care of Police Survivors and the North West Police Benevolent Fund, as well as the Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund.
