Scilly trio complete Cancer Research winter run

Three St Mary’s residents braved the icy temperatures to join the London Winter Run yesterday.

Leanne Gibbons, Bec Campion and Becky Hicks were among 23,000 runners taking part in the fifth annual event in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Leanne finished the 10k race in 59 minutes and 18 seconds, Bec in 59:19 and Becky in 1:02:58.

Becky said afterwards: "It's freezing up here but it was roasting running."

The Winter Run raised £2,000,000 for Cancer Research and other good causes in its first four years.

Becky, Leanne and Bec have so far raised £250 via their fundraising page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/becky-hicks2019.
