Bus driver Paul Maw will tackle eight gruelling runs this summer to raise money for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice.
Mr Maw, 47, raised more than £1,300 when he ran the Great North Run last September.
He will starts this year’s mammoth fundraising effort with the Wakefield Hospice 10k this Sunday.
Mr Maw, of Priordale Road, Featherstone, said: “I enjoyed the Great North Run so much I thought I would do something again this year.
“I’ve only been running for two years but I’ve been clocking up more than 100 miles a week in training so I’m feeling pretty confident.”
Mr Maw hopes to raise £3,000 for the Halfpenny Lane hospice, which cared for his grandfather and a neighbour.
He also hopes to boost funds by organising a fun day in the summer.
He added: “I wanted to support a local charity and thought it would be a tribute to my grandad and neighbour.
“The hospice staff do a fantastic job and it’s very important they get the funding.”
