RUNNERS put their best foot forward to raise funds for a disability charity at its annual marathon event.

Hundreds took part in the Andover Trail Marathon last weekend in aid of the Enham Trust and raised £1,242.50.

The race, which started and ended at the trust’s main site in Enham Alamein, saw running enthusiasts and novices alike from across the area compete one of a selection of courses.

Each participant took on one of three distances of 26.2miles, 13.1 and a 6.1-mile in Andover and surrounding villages.

Matthew Spackman, income generation lead at the charity, said: “The event was a huge success and saw over 250 runners take part across the three distances available.

“It is great for local runners to utilise the beautiful countryside that is on our doorstep.

“I would like to thank Andover Trail Runners for all their support and for hosting the event at Enham Trust for the third year running.”
