Cuckfield mum Sally Symes, 49, completed the 26.2 mile marathon around some of London’s greatest landmarks in 4 hours 19 seconds.

So far Sally has raised £1,446.00 for Diabetes UK but hopes further donations might help her to raise even more.

After crossing the line, she said: “Well, it was fun in a painful sort of way. Absolutely glorious support all the way round!

“But, after 650+ miles of training since October, in the dark most of the time, I still didn’t break my four hour nemesis! I’m not sure what happened, but my legs were like lead after mile ten. When I realised I’d lost my pace, I decided to settle back and enjoy the experience. Completed it in 4:19 - even raced a two-man horse to the end!

“Highlight was seeing my lovely Daisy at the diabetes cheering point near mile 23 - very emotional.”
