A St Albans Virtual Marathon runner battled the elements to raise over £8,000 for Shelter on Sunday.
Starting her challenge at 5.30am, Alison Chason braved the rain and flood water to complete her marathon in five and a half hours.
Crossing the finish line in Longacres park, Ali was greeted by her supporters.
Ali’s efforts have raised much-needed funds for Shelter, the housing and homeless charity. As well as running the Virtual London Marathon, Ali has organised and run Zumba classes over Zoom, with a three-hour long Zumbathon raising over £1,000.
Her route through St Albans was lined by her supporters, with some creative friends making London landmarks such as Big Ben and donning masks with faces of the Royal Family.
