Friends from Newmarket and Burwell break handcuff-run record at London Marathon and raise more than £6,000
Two friends have beaten the world record for a handcuffed marathon by female athletes, while raising money for charity.
They set a new record by an astonishing one hour, finishing in three hours, thirty minutes and eight seconds and raised more than £6,000 for Tom’s Trust, which funds psychological support for children suffering with brain tumours and their families.
Kerry and Troi chose the charity after Tom Whiteley, a boy who went to the same school as Kerry’s children, died of a brain tumour in 2010.
Kerry said: “I’ll never forget the devastating letter from the headteacher on the day Tom died. I had children the same age and that has motivated me to help the charity ever since.
“We wanted to do something big to draw attention to the charity and the help it gives these children and their families.
