FATHER of two Marc Radford and his friend Jack Harrington have raised more than £600 so far by taking part in the Macmillan Longest Day Golf Challenge.

Both Marc, 43, and Jack, 27, played four rounds of golf on the highest golf course in the United Kingdom, West Monmouthshire in South Wales, on Tuesday July 19, covering more than 20 miles of walking throughout the day.

Marc said: “It was simply the most gruelling day of my life, we woke up at 3am and went home at 11.30pm. We were exhausted but it was really worth it.

“We are both keen golfers and wanted to challenge ourselves. We know what fantastic work Macmillan do and we want to raise some money for a great charity. We are really pleased with the £600 and are still raising money now.

“Both me and Jack are a determined and confident pair and we play as much golf as we can in the school holidays usually travelling the length and breadth of the country to play new courses. I have played 600 courses across three continents so knew this challenge, although hard, would be doable.”

The pair walked 58,560 steps each on one of the hottest days of the year during their marathon effort.
