A keen runner from Fenny Compton is in the final stages of preparing for the Stratford-upon-Avon Marathon.
Sharon Halleron-Kerr (pictured) is manager of Sulgrave Village Shop and will run the 26-mile course for Katharine House Hospice on Sunday, April 27.
Mrs Halleron-Kerr said: “I have been running for about 14 years and have taken part in a few half marathons. This will be my first marathon and I am looking forward to it. I always prefer the smaller events as the team spirit and camaraderie is brilliant.”
