RUN­NING one marathon is a daunt­ing chal­lenge for most but for one woman it’s only the start. Caro­line Evans, 25, of Char­tridge Lane, Che­sham, is run­ning three races in just over six months to raise money and aware­ness of the char­ity War Child, which helps chil­dren af­fected by con­flicts. She com­pleted her first one, the Lon­don Marathon, on Sun­day and will tackle the Stock­holm Marathon on May 30 and, fi­nally, the New York City Marathon on Novem­ber 1.

She said: “It was a great day and I com­pleted the marathon in 3hours 53 min­utes, which is five min­utes faster than my time last year so I’m very happy.

“I’m not too sore to­day [Mon­day], I’m just try­ing to keep mov­ing.”

The run­ner got a taste for long dis­tances last year when she ran the Lon­don Marathon, rais­ing £3,000 for the same char­ity.

The for­mer Che­sham Gram­mar School pupil was hop­ing to raise a min­i­mum of £2,500 for the cause this year but she smashed that tar­get af­ter hold­ing a char­ity golf day at Char­tridge Park Golf Club ear­lier this month which raised £4,500.
