A SAFETY expert from Harrogate is embarking on a marathon tour of the country’s football grounds to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.

Steve Hanson, 45, associate safety adviser at Strathmore Services, is to run 213 miles over 12 days from Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium to Leeds United’s Elland Road, prior to their first home game of the season against Bradford City in the Carling Cup.

Steve’s run will take in a number of other stadiums along the way with his longest stretch being the run from Derby’s Pride Park to Chesterfield’s B2Net Stadium.
