Regular fundraiser Abigail Baker is all set for her next challenge – the Votwo Jurassic Coast Challenge.
Starting on March 27, Abigail will run 78 miles from Charmouth to Shell Bay – the equivalent of three marathons in just three days. She said: “I plan to run what I can and crawl the rest!”
Over the past few years, Abigail has completed the Bournemouth half marathon, the Purbeck 16 and the London marathon to raises thousands for R.A.B.I.
“I’ve had a challenging time training with the storms,” Abigail said, “But not as challenging as the farmers out there, so the thought that I can support them in some way has kept me going.
“Storm Ciara nearly had me, but I still managed 10 miles in 70 mile-per-hour winds.”
This past weekend, Abigail ran the Larmer Tree half marathon with her husband Graham (pictured above) on one day and the 20-mile Grizzly Run in Seaton the next. She said: “There was some serious mud to contend with!”
Farming is a large part of Abigail’s life. As her husband is a farmworker and her best friend runs a dairy farm, Abigail is keen to support the farming community. She added: “R.A.B.I helps those in need with real, practical support. This is why they are my chosen charity again.”
