Months of dedicated training paid off for Shaftesbury area marathon runners yesterday.
Alfred spoke with local athletes who completed their 26-mile runs in London and Motcombe. Shaftesbury’s Luke Hicks, Fontmell runner Siân Highnam and Motcombe’s Sarah Junor shared their times and race experiences with us directly from the capital.
And Alfred’s Jane Smith caught up with a group of women who completed their 26-mile ‘virtual London Marathon’ circuit in Motcombe yesterday. The five friends ran for ‘Team Torri’ in support of local schoolgirl Torri Stranger’s Children With Cancer charity appeal.
