Beauty therapist Jane Bennett will swap her face and body treatments for running shoes when she takes part in this year’s London Marathon.

Jane, from Radlett, runs her own business and will be celebrating her 50th birthday four days before the Virgin Money Marathon on April 26.

She is running on behalf of the charity Beating Bowel Cancer in memory of a close friend Mark Green who died a year ago.

She explained: “The marathon will be two days before the anniversary of his death. With it being such a poignant time I want to raise money to fight this terrible disease. It would also be a tribute to a wonderful man, husband and father.”

Jane started running five years ago but this will be her first marathon. She added: “Training is going well, I’m seeing a lot of the physio.”

Bowel cancer is the UK’s second-biggest cancer killer after lung cancer with the majority of cases presenting in people over 50.
