Sidmouth Runner on her way to London
Sidmouth Running Club member, Kerry Boyle, is on schedule with both her tough training programme and fund raising plans for her London Marathon challenge. Kerry, who fits training in around being a mum and working as a GP, has been gaining community support in her challenge to raise £2000 for The Institute of Cancer Research.
Kerry and her supporters have arranged a Charity Quiz and Auction on the 24th of February 2018 at the Woodlands Hotel. Kerry said, ‘we have some fantastic donations for the Auction from generous local businesses including tickets for Exeter Chiefs, a photo shoot at Willow studios, classes at Jala Flow and 4 balls at Sidmouth Golf Club. There’s a raffle too and loads of great prizes including family days out and beauty and spa treatments. I’m still collecting prizes so please contact me if you have a donation’.
Tickets for the event have almost sold out with some competitive spirit expected on the night. ‘We have two teams from the Running Club, one from the Rugby Club, some parents and teachers from the local primary schools, the WI have a team and Claremont Medical Practice in Exmouth where I work will have a team’ said Kerry, ‘it’s going to be fantastic fun watching them battle it out!’
Training for the London Marathon is also going well, despite the damp and dismal weather. Kerry will be running in Sidmouth Running Club’s ‘Four Trigs’ event this Sunday. ‘It has been tough getting out with the dark mornings and the ground being so wet and muddy, but I’ve got up to 16 miles and I’m hoping that the ‘Four Trigs’ will be a good mental and leg strengthening event’.
