Barry Siddons is getting set to rock and roll as he prepares to fly out to Brooklyn next week to compete in his 39th marathon of his career.
Barry from Mablethorpe is taking part in the Brooklyn Rock and Roll 10k Marathon which takes place Saturday, October 12 but Barry flys out on October 8 to get together his final preparations for race day.
Being very familiar with Marathons, Barry also likes to do his bit and raise money for charity for each race he does.
This time round, for his 39th race, he will be raising funds for Scope.
Barry explained: “This is my 39th race over the years I have been running, but my main aim before I put my running shoes away, I would like to have achieved running 40 different marathon races.
“I’ve been training hard since January to get up to speed as this is a faster paced race in comparison to what I’m used to, and this is only the second time I have competed in a race of this kind.”
Barry added: “During my training I have been running around five 5K races per week and I’m feeling confident ahead of the race next week and hoping to do well.”
Barry is unsure as of yet to where his big milestone 40th race will take place or what distance, but he’s sure to go out with a bang.
Charity Scope who Barry is raising money for is all about changing society for the better, so that disabled people and their families can have the same opportunities as everyone else.
Everything they do is about creating real and lasting positive change in individual lives.
Scope believe that together they can help to create a better society.
