Two teaching staff from Rishton have successfully completed the Manchester Marathon.
Rachael Gavin and Marie Fenton, who work at Rishton St Charles RC primary school, finished the marathon together in four hours and 12 minutes.
The marathon was Rachael’s fourth and Marie’s first and they both trained together in the build up to the event.
Rachael, who runs the school’s running club with Marie and is a Blackburn Road Runners member, said: “We had a good time. It was a bit tiring at times but nice weather.
“It was a really good atmosphere and great crowd.
“The local people were very friendly and were giving out jelly babies.”
