Editor Si and Deputy Editor James saw a month's worth of training come to fruition as they both crossed the finishing line, where they were greeted by little Joseph Kendrick and his family, who set up Joseph's Goal, which has been supported by a host of Premier League footballers and new Everton boss Roberto Martinez.

Joseph is now four years old and has Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia, a rare genetic disorder that affects one in 60,000 new-borns. The condition is so serious that less than 500 people in the world are living with it. Joseph's Goal has been set up to raise funds and awareness into NKH.

Any money raised funds research in Colorado, with Joseph's Goal's long-term aim to find a cure to the disorder.

The donations page is still available if you're able to dig deep and make a donation to a great cause.

Joseph's dad Paul - who also ran the race alongside Simon, James and Radio 5Live's George Riley - used to work for TEAMtalk.com and is now football correspondent for the Wigan Evening Post and Wigan Observer.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
