A cross-Canada runner is expected in a Surrey courtroom today to face an assault charge.

Steve Fonyo became famous three decades ago after running across the country to raise money for cancer research and he’s faced a string of legal problems ever since.

He is currently out on bail, waiting to be tried for alleged possession of stolen property.

He also recently spent three months in prison for domestic assault.
