It is all go in the Wrigglesworth household as Tom's mum and gran help his dad train for the Sheffield marathon. Meanwhile, Tom is asked on a stag weekend going 'coasteering'.

Further details

Tom is worried for his health when he's invited on an adventure-packed stag weekend of "coasteering", an activity that involves hurling oneself off tall rocks and into the sea. But that's nothing compared with what his dad is preparing himself for: the Sheffield marathon. An event he's decided to enter to, in his eyes, get one over on the next door neighbour.
