Pictured on the right, with the medal round her neck, is a vet and ran the Paris Marathon in April 2014 for the Trust.
Well done Alice. She completed the course in 4 hours 34 minutes and had her parents and boyfriend there to support her. She said it was a truly inspiring and fantastic experience and to have raised over £1,000 for the Trust made all the training worthwhile. She is now going to enter the ballot for London – well and truly hooked!

For everyone who runs a marathon, it is always going to be a personal goal, on ones so called “bucket list” or to raise money for charity. As a marathon debutante, when I signed up in October 2013 to run 26.2 miles round Paris in April 2014, the former was one of my motivations. What I had underestimated was fitting training around work and an on call rota, often resulting in early wet morning runs! However, I have decided to put the early starts, hours of training and ultimately the race to good use to support the Trust.
My aim when running in Paris is to simply get round the course and not, as I have done so a few times so far in training go “off course”! Thank you for reading and for any support you may give.
