This year is the 35th Chester Half Marathon, it is one of UK’s longest established and highly regarded half marathons, starting and finishing in the historic Roman/Medieval international destination city of Chester. This year we are proud to announce we have a runner taking part, Michelle Kilian Penketh Group’s Purchasing Manager is running for our chosen charity – Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
Michelle has been training for the half marathon since Christmas! Setting her alarm for the crack of dawn, squeezing in 5am training sessions before her kids wake up, so she is back in time for her busy morning routine and school drop offs (that is dedication Michelle!) Michelle runs for half an hour to 45 minutes 5 days a week and includes a 2 hour run on the weekends.
“It’s so much easier getting out in the morning before the kids wake up, I enjoy having ‘me’ time and it really sets me up for the day!”
Michelle’s first half marathon was in Liverpool back in March, having really enjoyed taking part in the event she is now looking forward to supporting a great cause and taking part in another. The race will take place next month on Sunday 15th May, if you would like to sponsor Michelle then visit our Just Giving profile to make a donation… and dig deep it’s all for a great cause!
