Keith Harbottle

The Alan Shearer Foundation's sporty supporter Keith Harbottle has done it again!

The ex-marine has completed his fifth feat this year in aid of the Foundation when he completed the Kielder marathon at the weekend.

After the 26-mile challenge Keith posted on his Action 4 Smiles Facebook page: "Event 5 cracked, #kieldermarathon not easy. 4hrs 17mins. Cheers everyone who has sent me messages etc and all the donations".

This is the second marathon the athletic fundraiser has completed this year for the Foundation along with the Coast2Coast cycle ride, the 104 mile Cyclone bike challenge and a fancy dress wheelbarrow push from Ponteland to St James' Park, Newcastle.

Keith is set to go like a rocket for his final test this year which is a 29-mile run from Otterburn to the Alan Shearer Centre in fancy dress on November 5.
