Hazel hits the ground running

A Horsham woman who completed a ‘couch to half marathon’ challenge is preparing for her second half marathon in aid of Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance after taking up running just five months ago.

Hazel Charman, 46, from Horsham successfully completed the Barns Green 13-miler and is now preparing for the Gosport Half Marathon on Sunday.

The IT project manager, who works for Royal Sun Alliance, started running only in June following a 12-week “Couch to Half Marathon” plan.

Hazel’s father Mike is a volunteer for the air ambulance which has been supported by the Barns Green Half Marathon for a number of years.

Hazel has so far raised £1,516 from the Barns Green Half Marathon and can still be sponsored for the Gosport run at
