Maria Runs The Great South!

Our warm congratulations to Maria who successfully completed this year’s ‘Bupa Great South Run’ on Sunday 25th October, running  in aid of Cancer Research UK.  This year was the 25th Anniversary of this exceptionally popular event with over 25,000 people taking part.

Maria managed to run the 10 mile round route in 1 hour 48 minutes, starting and finishing on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea, via Old Portsmouth and the Historic Dockyard.  Team Maher Ross were all amazingly impressed by Maria's performance - especially considering that she had only registered for the event four weeks before the big day, giving herself only this amount of time to train!

Buoyed with her success this year, Maria aims to register much earlier for next years event and is hoping to beat this year's time.  She is also researching other charity running events in the mean time, in an attempt to raise even more money!    Maria managed to raise over £135 this year but she is still welcoming donations. 

So far, Cancer Research UK has saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and the survival rate has doubled over the last 40 years.
