LANCASTER father Mark Birkett ran through the Craven district on his quest to pound the pavements from his home town to York.

The idea was to raise awareness and money for the Diabetics With Eating Disorders charity.

His daughter, Sarah, now 30, has been a sufferer since the age of 12.

Mr Birkett, 55, ran the 110 miles journey from Friday June 1 to Sunday June 3, and running for up to 12 hours each day.
