The 100-mile Ride London event may have been cancelled but that didn’t stop an athlete from the South Kent Harriers taking on a similar challenge.
Marie Watson was joined by her friend Di Yemm to cover the distance and following a route that took in Wye, West Well, Charing, Pluckley, Tenterden and Rye in East Sussex.
The pair were up against wind and rain, in addition to the distance, and completed the 100 miles in seven hours.
Marie was doing the ride in memory of her dad, Tony, who ran 118 marathons before being diagnosed with motor neurone disease. She has raised around £500 for the MND charity.
She had been hoping to ride the London to Surrey 100 in August but all of the Ride London events this year have been cancelled.
