RUNNERS Phil Midgley, from Wadebridge, and Bodmin's Lee Hoskin have been training in style for the Brighton Marathon.

The pair are raising money for Breast Cancer Care and as part of their fitness regime, and to drum up sponsorship, they were outside the Tesco store in Wadebridge running 44 miles on a treadmill.

Lee Hoskin, head gardener at Glynn Valley Crematorium, is no stranger to raising money.

"Both Phil and I have to raise at least £500 each to take part on April 6 and if people will sponsor me with that amount, I will promise to do the marathon in a pink tutu,'' he said.

Mr Midgley thanked "fantastic" supporters. People wishing to support the pair can donate at www.justgiving.com/Phil-Midgley-Brighton or www.just giving.com/Lee-Hoskin4
