LYNSEY Maloy overcame a number of obstacles to complete the Run to Beat half-marathon in London at the weekend.

As reported in The Crow, Lynsey, 28, took up the challenge to raise funds for the Leukaemia Research charity.

She said: "I woke up on Sunday feeling nervous and excited, and travelled to London only to find that there was planned engineering work and also a couple of broken down trains at the O2 arena.

"But I managed to get to the start which was chaos because of the transport problems and the bad weather.

"Although I was aiming to run the half marathon in under two hours, because of the relentless rain and very sore muscles, I crossed the line in two and a half hours."

Sponsorship money is still coming in, and so far Lynsey has raised more than £350 for charity. Her fundraising page will remain open until December at www.justgiving.com/lynseymaloy.
