Horse lover will hoof it to complete Chippenham and Malmesbury Half Marathons
12:20pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
Keen horse woman Caroline Hogg is swapping her riding boots for her running trainers as she prepares to take on both Chippenham and Malmesbury Half Marathons.
It has been nearly a decade since Miss Hogg, 40, ran in a half marathon, but she believes her work with horses and training with Malmesbury Running Club will see her through.
She said: “I ran a couple of half marathons about eight or nine years ago so it has been a long time since, but I have been doing lots of training.
“I’m looking forward to it but slightly nervous.”
Miss Hogg has collected £400 so far towards her chosen charity Riding for the Disabled, for which she volunteers.
She said: “I didn’t set a target because with the way things are at the moment every little bit helps.
“I have been working with horses all my life and I am very passionate about them.”
