Launceston teen Jack Duffy might be a wheelchair-user but he's already completed Hobart's Point to Pinnacle race - and now he's set his sights on a marathon in his hometown.
Jack, 13, has cerebral palsy spastic quadriplegia, which limits speech, as well as the use of his arms and legs.
But he's not letting this stop him staying active and living life to the fullest.

On Sunday, September 8, Jack and his Just Like Jack team will be participating in the St.LukesHealth Launceston Marathon, in a bid to inspire others with similar medical conditions, to show them that not everything has to be impossible.
Jack's dad Chris Duffy said he and those also close to his son were happy they could support his adventures.
"Jack's life and his adventures aren't about what he can't do: they're about how - with a little help from those around him - he can do just about anything," Mr Duffy said.
"If we can do it, you can too."
As well as completing the Point to Pinnacle race, the Just Like Jack team has walked the Overland Track and kayaked the East Coast to raise money for special needs charities.
Race director John Claridge said he was "extremely grateful" the Just Like Jack team had chosen the marathon as their next challenge.
