Pushing the limits

AN INSPIRATIONAL runner is challenging herself to complete six races this year to raise money for two charities.

Candace Jewell, from Bideford, caught the running bug last year and has already run one of this year’s races in a 10-mile battle against the winter elements.

The Braunton 10 Miler was the first of the six races which also include two races in Bideford of 10k and 10 miles each, a seven-and-a-half-mile run across Exmoor and two half marathons.

Every penny she raises will be split between the Chemotherapy Appeal and Bliss, a charity which helps premature and sick babies.

Candace said: “Running is definitely addictive. I have taken part in race for life for the past two years but my taste for running really started after entering the Bideford 10k run last May as part of the Farm and Cottage Holidays team.
