Athlete on year-long running challenge visits Burnham-On-Sea

A runner who has set herself the challenge of taking part in competitive races in every county of the UK in just one year has visited a Burnham-On-Sea event this week.

Mary Mills has run races in 63 counties over the past 12 months to mark her 50th birthday as part of a personal challenge.

On Thursday she took part in Burnham's 5km winter series running race on the town's seafront. Mary was congratulated by Burnham Swim and Sports Academy's Sara Cox Conklin as she crossed the finishing line, as pictured.

Mary told "I wanted to mark my 50th birthday year with a unique personal challenge and am delighted to have completed races in 63 counties across the UK, with Somerset the latest location. I've enjoyed it, but there has been a lot of travelling!"
