A broken wrist has put paid to a Llangollen woman's plan to run a half-marathon in memory of her friend who died earlier this year.
At the age of 78, Judy Smith had registered to take part in this September’s Great North Run on September 10.
She aimed to tackle the 13-mile course to boost funds for Cancer Research UK in memory of her late friend Sandra Woodhall.
Together they had founded and organised the famous Llangollen Round Challenge which has raised many thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK since it began in 2012.
But Judy has had to change her plans after suffering a broken wrist.
She said: "Unfortunately, I've managed to break my wrist falling over at the Erddig Parkrun on Saturday.
"I have a lovely purple plaster on my arm but I think the Great North Run at the end of next week would not be a good idea.
"I have therefore switched my entry to the Great South Run on October 15.
"It's 'only' 10 miles as opposed to a half marathon, but I do hope you'll still feel able to support me in memory of Sandra."
"I thank all those who have already supported me at this time."
