The relay race runs alongside the main Milton Keynes marathon event, with each competitor running a leg of 6.2, 6.9, 6.9 and 6.2 miles. Chris whose idea it was to form the team said "training is going well so far and we've managed a few group sessions around Willen Lake, I think the fact that we're raising money for Supershoes has given us real motivation to make sure we complete it in a good time. I love the thought that we may be able to brighten a child's day that doesn't have much to smile about at the moment and hopefully take their mind of their illness even if it's just for a short time. Since having children myself, I see things from a parent's perspective and I can only begin to imagine the dark situations which a family can find themselves in, Supershoes is a great charity and relies solely on donations, so we're keen to raise as much money for them as possible,"
