Video: mum steps up to tackle epic 111-mile race


A mum is in training for a gruelling running race in June – to raise funds for her daughter’s school in Stroud.

Josy Hayes, whose daughter is at St Rose’s School, will be joined by Stroud author and runner Nikki Owen: “I am running the Warwickshire Ring non-stop 111-mile canal race Warwickshire Ring 111 mile Canal Race (WRCR) 2024 | Canalrace C.I.C. on June 29th in aid of St Rose’s special school where my gorgeous daughter Amalie is a pupil,” explained Ms Hayes.

“She had a devastating illness as a baby which left her with severe brain damage and has been at St Rose’s since 2014. We won a year-long tribunal against the council and have not looked back since. St Rose’s is such an amazing school and it’s now my turn to give something back for all the support they have given me over the years.

“St Rose’s has been a special school since 1912 and they look after profoundly disabled children and young adults up to 25 years old. They are always in need of updating buildings, buy new specialist equipment and I would very much like to raise as much as I can for them through this crazy race that I’m embarking on.

“I’ve never done anything like this before – it’s going to be a huge personal challenge but all the pain / training etc will be worth it if I can help them raise as many funds as possible.”
