Here at Rosemary Bookkeeping Newbury & Basingstoke, we are proud to support and share the amazing achievement by our very own April Fost.

April set herself a challenge at the start fo the year to complete 12 running events through the year. The events were varied and included the particularly challenging Snowdonia Marathon in October.

Aprils story…

“So I started the year with a goal to run 12 events, this was my challenge, for those who know me I said I would NEVER run a marathon…..Yet I have decided not only to do a marathon but a wonderfully hilly one as my first. This is in memory of my Nanny Emmie who sadly passed away just over 3 years ago after a battle with Alzheimers and Dementia. I hope she would be looking down proudly, but more likely she would be thinking are you absolutely crazy, but then I definitely got some of my crazy from her :-D”

April’s 12 events were:

1. Rough and Tumble – 10 mile – Trail 
2. Burghclere Fun Run – 5k – Trail/Rd 
3. Winchester – 10k – Road 
4. Windsor/Eton – 13.1 mile – Road 
5. Hi-5 Swings & Smiles – 13.1 miles 
6. Jurassic Coast – 10k – Trail 
7. Hurstbourne Tarrant – 5 mile – Trail
8. Farnham Pilgram – 13.1 miles – Trail
9. Winchester – 13.1 miles – Road 
10. Oxford – 13.1 miles – Road 
11. Snowdonia – 26.2 miles – Road 
12. Arundelle – 7 hour timed event – Ultra 31.5 miles – Track

And she raised a total of £920.00.
