LOSTOCK's Anthony Wilcock finished his most recent half marathon on Sunday in his quest to complete 30 half marathons in his 30th year for the Zuri Project in Uganda.

Wilcock set himself the challenge to raise funds for the social enterprise, which aims to develop educational, health and self-directed sustainability projects in the Kihembe village area in Uganda.

His latest event took him to the Fylde Coast for the Great North West half marathon where he finished in a time of 2hrs 11secs.
