2023 Manchester Marathon

My Story

A year after my breast cancer diagnosis brought my world to a standstill, I will be making my big come-back at Manchester Marathon 2023! My friends and family will know that I've been no stranger to long distance running, but after an intense, roller-coaster year of surgery, chemo, radiotherapy and various ongoing hormone drugs, running a marathon has now become a pretty big deal for me and also a chance to try and get back a bit of me! Your support for me and this excellent charity will certainly keep me going while I attempt to get back into some serious marathon training in the coming months. I'm honoured to be running for Cancer Research, not only for my own personal cancer experiences but also in memory of those we've lost and for those who are yet to find themselves on this road. With more research, more people can have a better chance of continuing to live their best lives. Much love and always #CheckYourBits!! Karen xxx Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
