A local annual running event, Andover Trail Marathon, last weekend raised £1242.50 for leading disability charity Enham Trust.

The marathon, which started and ended at the Trust’s main site in Enham Alamein, saw running enthusiasts from the Andover area gather together to participate in one of 3 distances; 26.2, 13.1 and 6.1 mile-long tracks around Andover and the surrounding villages. The event was organised in conjunction with Andover Trail Runners.

Matthew Spackman, Income Generation Lead, commented;

“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.”

The funds raised from this event will go towards Enham Trust’s ongoing work; supporting thousands of disabled people across the country each year in the key areas of their lives by providing housing, care, and various employment & skills opportunities.

If you've been inspired, we have other running events, marathons and challenges coming up soon!
