Lance Corporal Tom Neathway will run 26.2 miles through the streets of Washington on his prosthetic legs. The 26-year-old, along with four other troopers, will raise cash for the Parachute Regiment's own charity to help injured troops. Neathway, a member of 2 Para, was hurt when a roadside IED exploded in July 2008. The soldier has since done five tandem parachute jumps, but rates the marathon as his greatest challenge.
