VistaTwo novice runners from Leicestershire are set to undertake their first-ever marathon on 13th April, with the pair currently in training to take on the Virgin London Marathon in aid of the region’s sight-loss charity, Vista.

Gurkaran Singh Bains and Harjit Singh Dosanjh have lost an incredible five stone between them since commencing their training, with both encouraging the other during early-morning sessions in a host of weather conditions.

“Vista is a charity close to both mine and Harjit’s hearts and we feel that by undertaking this challenge, we’re able to help people less fortunate than us,” said Gurkaran

Anybody wishing to donate money to Gurkaran and Harjit ahead of their incredible challenge can do so via the pair’s JustGiving page at
