Runner Geoff Hudd in training for Bath Half Marathon . . . at the age of 71
At the age of 71 some people would be putting their feet up, and enjoying retirement.
But Geoff Hudd, from Bloomfield Avenue, is going out running in all weathers as part of his training for next year's Bath Half Marathon.
Mr Hudd is running for the Forever Friends Appeal as thanks for the treatment he received at the Royal United Hospital when he was battling cancer.
The appeal is raising £5 million towards a £20.5 million new cancer centre at the RUH, which will bring services together under one roof.

He said: "I have been given the staff's undivided and friendly attention for as long as I have needed it.
"The urology and oncology departments of the RUH are brilliant, so please help to raise funds to give them and their patients the premises and facilities they so much deserve."
Mr Hudd was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010, and following the diagnosis had his prostate gland removed.
He had six weeks of daily radiotherapy treatment and was well enough to complete the race this year.
