Virtual marathon challenge

The chief executive of the Papworth Trust has launched a virtual marathon challenge to raise money for charity and is inviting the public to join her. Sarah Miller decided to take on the challenge of completing a marathon distance of 26.2 miles on her treadmill over the course of a week in April. She will start at 10:58, which was her start time when she took part in the race in 2019.

She said: “The Papworth Trust has seen its fundraising plans devastated due to the coronavirus outbreak and that is why I am launching our marathon challenge.  “I intend to run four miles each day, plotting my course, starting on April 25 and finishing the following Saturday having completed the 26.2 miles.  I haven’t run since last April, so it is going to be a huge shock to my system!”
