WATCH: Joanne prepares for marathon madness

A fitness enthusiast is preparing to take on the biggest challenge of her life.

Joanne Egerton, who represents the Hyde Village Striders, is set to complete ten marathons in ten consecutive days as part of the Brathay Trust 10in10.

The epic challenge will take place in May this year. There are only 22 people in the UK taking part and it is considered to be the UK's toughest challenge.

Joanne has created a JustGiving page which has so far generated £3,433 towards a £4,500 target. Joanna has been helped on her fundraising journey by St John's Church of England Primary School in Dukinfield, who raised a fantastic £1,500 with their own spin on Joanne's challenge.

During our visit to St John's, we spoke to Joanne to get her thoughts ahead of the challenge, and we also spoke to headteacher Vicki Lee-Hewitt.
