“Morph Man” John Gartland stopped off in Burnley as part of his epic seven marathons in seven days challenge.

The pub manager from Macclesfield ran past Turf Moor last Tuesday as part of his 182 mile round trip.

John, who was running in a special energy sapping morph suit which purposely decreases the amount of oxygen, completed the challenge on Sunday at his pub The Old Millstone in Macclesfield.

He was running to raise money for NHS Echo Hospital Charity and the East Cheshire Hospice. For more information and to donate money, visit www.justgiving.com/morphmanecho.
