Two Arran women joined thousands of runners in London last Sunday to taking part in the London marathon.

It was a first time outing in the event for Barbara Crawford and Carol Brown but as a result of their feat, in the blistering heat, they have raised more than £6,000 for the Maggie’s cancer charity.

In the run up to the marathon they ran a number of fundraising events at the Kinloch Hotel in Blackwaterfoot as well as putting in hours of training on the roads. Well done to them both.

Barbara and Carol are still smiling at the finish line. NO_B17marathon01
