A WOMAN will be running the Edinburgh marathon this weekend to raise money for the Working Together charity in Ludlow.

Sarah Edwards has finished her training and now it is just a case of performing on the big day which is on Sunday.

“I am pleasantly surprised at how well this has all gone,” said Ms Edwards.

I have remained blister and injury-free throughout, I have learnt about how to take on board fluids and nutrition, how to pace myself and I have managed to work out an outfit that keeps chafing to a minimum.

“Not only that but I have enjoyed the whole experience immensely.”

Working Together brings people with learning difficulties into the heart of town life with various activities. Most recently members of the group ran a creche at the Ludlow Spring Festival and Marches Transport Festival.
