Jules completes the Brighton Marathon for MRSA Action UK
The Brighton Marathon had over 18,000 runners this year, and many charities were supported by the fantastic efforts of those taking part. For Julia Owen from Chelmsford, aka Jules, this was a personal triumph as she completed the marathon in 4 hours 26 minutes. This is Jules’s fourth race of the year, and race number fourteen for MRSA Action UK. Her husband Steve was cheering her on, and has run as many races to support our charity, and in memory of his dad Donald Owen, who sadly died after contracting MRSA during surgery.
It was perfect conditions for marathon running. Jules’s phenomenal finish time left her delighted. She said “I’m so chuffed with the time”. We are proud of her too to read more about Jules and Steve visit their page at http://mrsaactionuk.net/julesnsteve.html
