A Lichfield woman has completed her marathon effort – and immediately set her sights on a new running goal.

Alice Walsh completed the course in four hours 19 minutes and 39 seconds.

The feat helped to raise more than £2,000 for Breast Cancer Care.

Alice said: “I knocked two minutes off my personal best in Manchester two years ago so I’m very pleased as London is a much more challenging course.

“I’m not running another marathon now, but I’m continuing my quest to run 25 half marathons before my 50th birthday.”

Alice only took up half marathons in 2011 after raising money for a hospice that helped care for her daughter.
