Doctor’s orders

A sporting GP is set to take part in a 200 mile race to raise funds for Derby Mountain Rescue Team.

Greg Cowley, the team’s Medical Officer and team member for 17 years, will race in the Dragon’s Back Race in Wales.

The challenge – which starts on September 3 – has only been held once before in 1992 and has become legendary amongst fell, mountain and ultra runners.

Greg said: “I’ve been training for eight months and I’m really excited.”
