Julies success in ‘Race for Life 2013’
Julie began training for the Pennine 10k run in January 2013. Julie has not done any running since she left school (well into the last century) but decided to take on the challenge of training for and competing in the Pennine 10k. She trained by running three times per week, through all of the worst winter and spring weather that we have experienced in years, to take part in the race on the 2nd June.
Julie has been running to raise money for Pendleside Hospice. Simpson Skoda of Colne has provided £150 to wear their t shirt whilst running the 10k race. The raise was completed in an amazing 67 minutes and raised £250 in total for PendlesideHospice
More recently Julie has gone on to compete in the Burnley Race For Life on June 16th in support of anyone suffering from cancer but particularly her brother Andrew and Auntie Jean, finishing in 30 minutes and 54 seconds. Well done Julie!
There’s more competition on the horizon with Julie currently training hard for the Wilmslow half marathon in March 2014. DrMargaret Bullock will also be joining her as the two will soon be competing in the Accrington 10K on 27th October 2013.
