Local athlete to tackle 100-mile challenge

Running coastal footpath for the Children's Centre

This weekend, a local athlete is taking on the biggest fitness challenge of her life so far - running the Island's coastal footpath in under 24 hours.

Olivia Newstead is doing it to raise money for the Children's Centre.

Setting off from Peel at midday she'll head in an anti-clockwise direction around the Isle of Man.

Olivia says she's been motivated to do the challenge by her experiences with bullying and eating disorders when she was younger, and what helped her to get through it: (play audio)
