Ten runners have between them raised more than £4,000 to help disabled and terminally ill children in the neighbouring counties of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.
The ‘Top Ten’ took part in the 2012 Adidas Half-Marathon at Silverstone racetrack in Northamptonshire earlier this month (March).
Newlife Fundraising Manager Nora Smith said: “We are grateful to all the runners who entered this event to raise money for the charity. This is an established half-marathon in the national running calendar and all the competitors invested a lot of time and effort into training for it. The end result is a significant sum of money which will help Newlife transform real lives.”
