Chris Marsden's Home Run

4:00pm - 7:00pm

A KEEN walker from York has completed an immense 274-mile trek across the country for a cause close to his heart.

Steve Smith, from Clifton Moor in York has completed the distance, which was the equivalent of ten marathons, in ten days, reaching Sheffield, Lutterworth, Birmingham, Bradford, Leeds and Normanton.

Throughout the journey, Steve, who works for a new charity called the evo Foundation, was joined by hundreds of his colleagues who took part and joined him for different legs of the trek, with his family and friends ready to surprise him as he crossed the finish line.
