Cabbie plans marathon bid

Have your say

SHEFFIELD cabbie Alan Brumley from Intake in Sheffield is set to run two-and-a-half marathons in aid of Mercury Taxis’ Charity of the Year Get Kids Going!

After only ever running the Sheffield 10K in 2007, Alan, 53, has set some ambitious targets as he aims to complete not only the Sheffield Half Marathon 2011 but also the Berlin Marathon 2011 and the London Marathon in 2012.

Peter Holmes, marketing manager at Mercury Taxis said: “We wish Alan all the best for his runs and fund-raising efforts.

“He has already shown fantastic dedication to his training, fitting in five sessions a week between working as ‘driver 32’, so we’re sure he’ll do really well.

“Alan is running for Mercury Taxis’ Charity of the Year 2011/12 Get Kids Going and we’d like to encourage as many people to get behind Alan and show their support by sponsoring him.“
