Helen Fream has Lincoln Half Marathon in her sights as part of her ‘three in three’ challenge on behalf of Cancer Research UK (CRUK). The Lincolnshire-born programme co-ordinator and her brother-in-law Darren Hardy will be among the thousands taking part in the closed-road race on Sunday 1 October.
Team Effort For Lincoln Half And Cancer Research
Lincoln Half Marathon is the second of three races in Helen’s diary, following the Folkestone Rotary Half Marathon and before the Paris 20K, and her aim is to complete these over three weeks.
Helen has watched her mother fight thyroid cancer over the last 15 years and during that time has participated in numerous events for cancer charities. Her mother is sadly coming to the end of her life, giving Helen an even greater reason to enter races such as the Lincoln Half to show her support. As well as being an experienced runner, Helen has completed several duathlons, triathlons and the Shine Night Walk for Cancer Research UK.
It’s a different story for Darren as Lincoln Half Marathon is his first attempt at the 13.1-mile distance. Helen has been on hand to offer training advice, with both runners looking forward to the race and the historic location.
Race director Ian Hamilton acknowledges their and other runners' fundraising efforts, saying: “We are delighted to welcome Helen Fream and all the other runners taking on Lincoln Half Marathon for our lead charity, Cancer Research UK.”
