Dad performs marathon feat

A BIG-HEARTED dad has crossed the finish line on his 44th marathon in 51 days.

Paddy Dearlove, 36, an Active Schools co-ordinator from Dunbar, has pounded the pavements for 1153 miles since launching the challenge on May 1, starting and finishing at the Sick Kids Hospital.

The father-of-three has now raised more than 10,000 for Comic Relief and the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.
