A Norwich property professional is heading to the US to tackle his first marathon at the age of 50.

Guy Gowing, managing partner at Arnolds Keys, decided to mark his half-century by taking on the New York Marathon in aid of Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind, of which he is a trustee.

He will line up with more than 50,000 other runners on November 5 on Statten Island, before heading for the finish line just over 26 miles away in Manhattan's Central Park.

Mr Gowing is aiming to raise £5,000 through his exploits.

He said: 'Being about to reach 50 years of age has made me realise that the thought of 'having a marathon in me somewhere' meant it was now or never.
