Alison said she was looking forward to the run. After the event we texted her to see how she got on! She said that although it was very hot she had enjoyed it somehow!!!!

Her official time was 1hour49 minutes which she was delighted with bearing in mind it was her first big run and the next day her legs weren’t too sore which was a bonus.

Although we sponsored Alison she managed to raise £80.00 herself which was very gratefully received by Smile for Life.
