Katie takes on Tresco!

Never let it be said that we don't practice what we preach here at the CF Trust. Our Events Manager, Katie Burr (pictured above), is putting her money where her mouth is this April when she takes on the 2009 Tresco Marathon with 130 other runners to raise money for the CF Trust.

The event takes place on Tresco, one of the Isles of Scilly on the same day as the London Marathon. The island is stunning with gorgeous beaches and the hospitality of the islanders is legendary - they all get involved with organising the event and making sure the runners are well looked after.

Katie says "I had such a good time when I worked at the event last year that I was determined to go back this year - so I took the rather drastic measure of signing up to run! This is my first marathon, which will be quite a challenge given the four hills on each of the 7 1/2 laps of the island!"

Katie is aiming to run the marathon in under 4 hours - we'll let you know how she gets on!
