Kelly Durbridge took on the challenge to raise money for the Parent Teacher Association at her daughter’s school, Bernards Heath.

The 46-year-old finished the 26.2mile race in four hours, 57 minutes and 43 seconds.

She said it was a great event: “I wasn’t disappointed in that for my first ever marathon.

“I am relieved mainly, because it was really hard.
