WOMAN runs 496 miles in 31 days for charity, in a gruelling challenge that grew with each day.
Rachel Langrish aged 38, from Murton, County Durham set out to run the same number of miles as the date of the month. So December 10 would be an easy for some 10 miles, and December 31, New Year’s Eve, a gruelling 31 miles.
The executive assistant at Durham University had hope to raise £1 for each of the £496 miles, but in 11 days had reached her target already. The runner has now raised over £2,500 for the RNIB.
Rachel said, “I would say by the last three days my shin and ankle were in excruciating pain. When I got to the last day I thought ‘I don’t know how I’m going to do this’.
“On the last day it would be about a six hour run but I thought if I have to walk this because of my ankle it could be nine or 10 hours.”
The gruelling 496 miles was not an easy challenge and the RNIB will surely make good use of the funds raised.
