THERE will be five runners lining up for the Primrose Hospice in Sunday’s London Marathon.
Sam Webster, Kate Low, Sara Phillips, Hayley Young and Bridget Haw have spent months of training and will be hoping their hard work pays off when they pound the 26.2mile course.
Each runner was set the challenge of raising £1,800 and all have personal reasons why the charity means so much of them.
Cheering them on will be friends and family as well as a team from Primrose Hospice.
Anna Wilson, the Primrose Hospice’s community fund-raiser, said they loved watching the coverage in a bid to catch a glimpse of the charity’s runners.
“We will be avidly following their progress on the mobile app and we know they will do incredibly well – we are so proud of all of them.”
She said they had done a fantastic job fund-raising to help the charity provide its free care and support for patients.
“We hope all the runners have an incredible day and we’ll be cheering them on from home.”
