Lady in Pink!

Our six Pink Lady® apple runners have all been hand-picked from Beginners2Runners running group, to take on the mighty challenge of running the world-famous 26.2 mile Virgin Money London Marathon course, dressed in a Pink Lady® apple costume.

First-time marathon runner, Zoe Finch, has only been running for just over a year. She joined the club last January and has been hooked ever since. Her marathon training has been going well. She completed the 30th Paddock Wood Half Marathon at the beginning of April, in the apple costume and loved every minute of it, setting her in good stead for 28th April.

Zoe took part in our exclusive training session with Team GB athlete Jazmin Sawyers, videos of which can be seen here, and took some valuable lessons away with her, mainly about keeping a cool head on the start line and sticking to your race plan. We want all of our runners to complete the course safely and enjoy every minute of it.

The whole Pink Lady® team are proud to be raising vital funds for the Padua Children’s Oncology Ward at William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, Kent. Money raised will support the refurbishment of the ward, contributing to creating a space for both the children and their family members, from all over the East Kent area, to relax, play and spend quality time together.
