PENSIONER and great grandad Arnold Pickup went to Benidorm on a trip with a difference.
Thousands of British pensioners travel to the Spanish beach resort to soak up the sun.
But Mr Pickup, 72, took part in Benidorm's half-marathon.
He finished the 13 miles in two hours.
Mr Pickup, of Tolson Crescent, Dalton, made £150 for a good cause - the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen's Association - back home.
The pensioner took part in his first marathon 20 years ago.
These days he settles for half-marathons only - but it's still further than a lot of much younger people can run.
Arnold has the proud record of having completed 50 full marathons and 109 at half the distance.
He handed his cash over when the Huddersfield branch of the association held its Christmas gathering at Bradley Golf Club.
