Jonathan's turn for a Run!


Jonathan takes on the running challenge

A Windermere hotelier has taken up a charity running challenge after his wife raised thousands of pounds doing the London Marathon.

Jonathan Kaye of the award-winning Cedar Manor Hotel is to take part in the Great North Run next month to help the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Rosemere is the hotel’s chosen charity of the year, and Jonathan and his wife Caroline have already raised some money for them with a raffle. Caroline has run two London Marathons for charity in recent years, which inspired Jonathan to start training seriously, after a series of injuries.

He completed the Langdale Christmas Pudding 10k in 52 minutes, and managed to continue training injury-free, running his first half marathon, the Coniston trail race, in June in 2.09.

Caroline has raised money for the Calvert Trust and Lupus UK with her marathon efforts. “I wanted to see if I could run a big race,” said Jonathan. “Caroline is a serious runner and has been training for years, but I’ve just been running for the fun of it till now – and getting some injuries along the way.

“But I’ve had a good summer, helped by my personal trainer Helen Westmoreland-Nicholson, and now it’s my turn to make the starting line.”

The Rosemere Cancer Foundation funds local cancer research, supporting world class cancer treatment throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria. They work in partnership with local clinical staff to achieve the best possible care for cancer patients in the region wherever they are treated.

Said Caroline:  “Jonathan has been really supportive when I’ve been running for charity so I’m really pleased that it’s his turn now.”
