Runner’s stories 2020

Jenny-Anne Dexter

Jenny took on the ultimate challenge to complete the MSMW 2020 Virtual Full Marathon. She chose to do each run in the relative towns (Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and East Grinstead). Jenny told us she has 3 exhausting days but had fantastic support from friends and her husband. We want to say a massive well done to her for completing the race and we hope she’s enjoying her bespoke medals.

Jenny said: “At first I was devastated I couldn’t take part in the Marathon Weekender but I decided to sign up for the virtual race after my friends agreed to support me by running alongside me. I couldn’t face doing it alone! They also drew up unique routes around Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and East Grinstead, so I didn’t know where I’d be going in advance, which added to the excitement. Completing it has given me a renewed belief that I can work towards a full marathon distance next year, which is my ultimate goal. So bring on 2021!
