The Bournemouth Marathon Festival will take place on the 7th and 8th October, and there is still time to register for a charity place with Macmillan Cancer Support, the official charity partner of the running festival.
If you are not sure that the weekend-long celebration of running is for you, then maybe you will be inspired by a Bournemouth woman who will be running in the 5k, 10k and the half marathon.
Amy Spreadbury who completed the Half Marathon in 2015 and in 2016 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support has this year decided to run the 5k, 10k and the Half Marathon.
Amy the Director of Sales at the Village Hotel in Bournemouth says “Cancer has affected so many of my loved ones. Sadly, I have lost two relatives this year and three other people close to me have been diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, we have had family and friends to support us, but not everyone does. So that is why I am running for Macmillan Cancer Support because nobody has to suffer alone, and with the fantastic work Macmillan do, nobody has to”.
If you have been inspired by Amy’s story, then visit Team Macmillan’s page on the Bournemouth Marathon Festival website to register for a place.
