Angus Bowyer, (24) is running the Luxembourg night marathon on the 1st June to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Angus who is currently reading history at Sheffield University, is taking part in the marathon in support of his friend Ryan Whitaker suffers with this disease.

Angus was born in Oswestry and lived in Australia with his family for many years, before he came back to live in Gobowen.  One of Ryan’s favourite holidays was coming out to visit Angus and his family in Australia.  This was 14 years ago when he was just going into a wheel chair, and it’s still rated as one of his best holidays.

Many will remember Angus from Ellesmere College where he did his A-Levels and played semi-Professional rugby in the UK and New Zealand before applying to Sheffield Uni. He worked for a while at the Walls before it closed.

A couple of weeks ago Angus did the Sheffield Half Marathon and completed it in just over an hour and a half.
