Trudy Blakemore

Ludlow Runner Trudy Blakemore was this year’s lucky winner in the London Marathon draw. She’s been hard at work training and told us how she’s been getting on:

“I thought long and hard about putting my name forward for the Running Club’s London Marathon ballot and after discussing at length with my family, who were all very supportive, I decided to put my name forward.  I was excited to see if I would be successful.

Then on the 8th of November I received the email confirming that I would in fact be running the Marathon. After the initial shock, panic and trepidation, the reality set in. Time for some serious training! I have been out 5 times a week ever since following my plan faithfully and I do not want to let the club, my family or myself down.

I decided to use this opportunity not only as a challenge but to raise some money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, a wonderful charity which I have a personal connection to. This time two years ago I could not run a mile and am so pleased with how far I have come to be running 26 miles in the coming weeks!

I would like to thank Ludlow Runners for giving me this amazing opportunity, they have always made me feel as though I can run anything.
