Oporto Sports client and Oldham Athletic assistant manager Ian Baraclough will be running the Brighton Marathon on 9 April 2017, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Ian lost his mother 38 years ago, at the age of eight and the 26.2 miles run will be the first time he has attempted a marathon.

Baraclough enjoyed a twenty year playing career with Leicester City, Wigan Athletic, Grimsby Town, Lincoln City, Mansfield Town, Notts County, QPR and Scunthorpe United, who he then went on to manage in the Championship, before taking the helm at Sligo Rovers and Motherwell.
