A Harpenden man is set to lace up his running shoes and complete the London Marathon in a kilt in the hopes of raising £5,000 for a heart health charity.

Ken Murray will pair his running gear with the traditional Scottish garment in support of a close friend who developed a heart problem, the Herts Advertiser reported.

All the donations Mr Murray earns from his run - his first marathon - will benefit Heart Research UK.

In the run-up to the event, he pledged to complete 1,000 miles in 24 weeks and is set to finish his final mile at the weekend.

Tempo runs, sprint drills and long runs have all been incorporated into his training and Mr Murray aims to complete the race in a total of three hours.

Runners in the marathon, which is set to take place on April 25th, will all race with a ChampionChip attached to their running shoes, which will provide each athlete with their official results based on the time elapsed between the start and finish lines.
