THESE two ladies are gearing up for the challenge of a lifetime – the New York Marathon.

Kay Hester and Fiona Wilson have done all their training and will be flying to the Big Apple for the annual race which takes place on Sunday, November 4.

The women from Rotherham are running to raise funds for Christian Aid.

The charity provides funding and training for those who are homeless, jobless and foodless and teaches them the skills they need to produce food and support themselves, their families and their communities.

Fiona said: “We may not be the best and we might be near the back, but we hope it will give us a great sense of achievement and that all the training will have been worthwhile.”
