An Ayr man who had to stop running a half marathon per day for charity after being warned by doctors will continue his epic trek - at walking pace.

Gary Burgess passed 220 days running before doctors told him to stop.

But the fundraiser has since continued on foot, walking for the past 27 days and passing 3,000 miles in the process.

Gary is raising money for the British Heart Foundation.

The runner chose the charity after doctors took care of his mother following open heart surgery, and he has raised almost £1,700 so far.

The epic, 13.8 miles-per-day for a year challenge is the equivalent of running from Ayr to East India.

Gary is attempting to reach 4,000 miles over the next four months.
