RUNNER Andrew McEwen fulfilled his dream of representing England — and he is set to do it all again.
McEwen, 56, of Cowes, ran for his country for the first time in the Chester Marathon on Sunday.
The Ryde Harrier was the second England runner in his age group to cross the line, in 2.59.28, making him third in the V50 category.
It means he will run again for England in next year's event.
He said: “It was an amazing experience and a real honour to run for England.
“I was hoping to get a new PB but it was a very fast start, which was a shock to the system.
“But overall I was really happy.
“I only ever imagined it would be a one-off, so to have the chance again next year is great.”
