Liam Harkness, a blind runner from Frome and Zdenek Gregor, a Somerset Sight trustee, are running The Frome Half Marathon on Sunday, July 17, raising money for Somerset Sight.
All races start at the Frome town football ground at 10am and make their way through the streets and surrounding countryside, returning through the town centre to the Frome Town FC football ground for a grandstand finish.
Liam Harkness is looking forward to the run. He said: "I have been helped by so many great organisations since I lost my sight, it is great for me to be able to try and give a little bit back to a fantastic local charity which does so much amazing work for visually impaired people."
