Marathon man gets others with DS running

Most of us will never even contemplate running a marathon race, and few would expect anyone with Down syndrome to do so.

Simon Beresford (41) has run the London Marathon twice, and has recently received an award in Germany where his efforts have encouraged other people with Down syndrome to form a running club.

His local newspaper in England, the Lichfield Mercury, reports on his Golden Chromosome Award here, and includes the thanks of Team 21 runners for inspiring them. There's a great photo of Simon too.
