Swindon Half Marathon 2012

Fay Roberts after the Swindon Half Marathon

Fay Roberts ran the Swindon Half Marathon for THE CATS FOUNDATION on the 14th October 2012! In her own words before the event Fay said:

    “I am competing in the Swindon Half Marathon (which just happens to be the hilliest half marathon in Britain – thought I would throw that in for sympathy!) and the fact that I even thought of completing this is a feat in itself – anyone who knows me know I am a COMPLETE Exercise Phobe and will make ANY excuse to get out of it!

Fay managed to complete the Swindon Half Marathon in 2 hours 24 minutes which was a great time and has managed to raise over £1, 400 for THE CATS FOUNDATION! We would like to thank Fay and all her supporters for this fantastic fundraising effort!
