Our very own Katy Lamsin did something she always considered to be on her bucket list in April when she ran the 2017 London Marathon. She completed the world-famous course in a great time of 4 hours, 31 minutes and 22 seconds while also raising over £5000 for Cancer Research UK.

London Marathon

“I am overwhelmed & overjoyed! Running through the London Marathon finish line gave me the most incredible feeling of euphoria.”

Inspired by Katy running the 2017 London Marathon, we thought we’d put together a selection of activities you can tick off your bucket list right her in Torbay.
