An Ely woman plans to break the world record for the fastest marathon time dressed as a fairytale character at the Virgin Money London Marathon.
Alison Stewart will be running this year’s 26.2-mile sprint while dressed as Snow White as well as raising as much money as she can for her chosen charity.
The 39-year-old King’s Ely employee will be running for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as chosen by her seven-year-old daughter.
Ms Stewart said: “It seemed very fitting given my outfit. We went to visit the hospice last week, and saw first hand the amazing work they do.
“I work at King’s Ely, and have a running club, who have been helping me train. I also asked one of the students to help me put together my costume.”
