It’s that time of year again…Both Helen and Karen have been coming in for months to be fit for the YORK Macmillan Cancer Charity race and to do the best job they can do while raising thousands for such a worthy cause.

We take our hat off to them and their journey has been incredible – they’ve come in driving snow, sleet or rain and now they are sweating in body protectors in the heat! Karen is likely to be riding our own Iconic Figure and we wish both girls the absolute best of luck for the big day at York and we can’t wait to see them in action there…
