'RHINO Boy' Chris Green will this weekend attempt to run his 50th marathon while wearing a rhino suit.

Chris, who lives in Embsay, plans to run the marathon at It's Grim Up North's Roche Abbey Trail Running Festival, Maltby, on Saturday.

He then plans to follow it up the next day with the Manchester Marathon, again in the rhino suit.

Chris, who has been running in support of the charity, Save the Rhino, since 2009, raising thousands of pounds and highlighting the plight of the endangered animal, recently completed his 100th marathon, without the suit.

He and his partner, Kate have temporarily moved down South so Kate, who is battling breast cancer for a second time, is closer for hospital appointments, but they hope to be back soon.
