Thank You, Nicola!

On a cold Sunday morning in October, Nicola Harris set off on yet another half marathon in Rugby through the disused Great Central railway and the closed town and country roads of Britain’s railway centre, this is a half marathon she didn’t want to miss. Not only for the beautiful scenery but this time she was doing it for Home-Start Northampton. Nicola decided that she could raise money for a worthwhile charity whilst doing something she really enjoys. She asked friends and family to guess home many steps it would take her to run the 13 miles. Her total was 20,538 in a great time of 1 hour 59.13 seconds. Thank You Nicola, we really appreciate your support.
