On May 31st of this year, Rosy had just completed her first race in her summer Challenge Rosy series, the Bristol 10k, with five more races of varying distances to take on before the year was over.
Since then, she has completed two half marathons, another 10k and a sprint triathlon over three different cities for multiple charities including the International Refugee Trust, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, the Frenchay After Burns Club and Muscular Dystrophy UK.
As if all of this wasn't enough, Rosy has left the biggest and most daunting challenge to the end - the Bristol to Bath Marathon - to raise money for Children's Hospice South West. She is doing a few last minute runs and doing some extra cardio exercises to make sure she is super ready for the big day. The team at Cleve Chiropractors have been helping Rosy with some physio therapy on her knees and will be providing her with some strapping on race day - Huge thank you to Keith at the Next Step Centre.
By the time she has finished her final challenge, Rosy will have covered a total of 86.5 miles, ran for 8 hours and 25 minutes, through four different cities and burned enough calories to allow her to eat 1897g of guilt free traditional flapjack.
The final #Challengerosy race is taking place on Sunday 31st October and begins on Bristol Harbourside at 9am finishing in Bath city centre. If you are free on the day, please come down and support Rosy, either in Bristol, Bath or at the half way mark. We are getting a big banner ready to cheer her over the finish line.
