In a bid to raise thousands of pounds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, survivor Chantele Rashbrook will host a clifftop challenge today.

The mother of two, from Deal, has organised a 55-mile run from Hastings to Deal along the coastline, with different starting points for different abilities.

Eighty people will take part with six starting from Hastings at 4am, including Mrs Rashbrook’s husband Phil. Other starting points include Lympne Castle, Capel Le Ferne and Dover seafront, with the finishing point at Deal promenade, opposite the King’s Head and Port Arms pubs.

On the square, from noon, there will be music from bands Rock Choir, The Strumbums and Independence, featuring Mrs Rashbrook’s 15-year-old son Charlie.

There will be a raffle and many stalls, including face painting and glitter art.

Everyone must wear pink and there will be prizes for the best-dressed female and male on the day.

Mrs Rashbrook said: “It’s a family-friendly afternoon of fun with music. If it’s a success, I’d like to make it an annual event.”
