FIRST-TIME runner Kelly Delaney dedicated her efforts to her late father David-John Fairweather.

Kelly will lay her medal on the ground where her father’s ashes are scattered at Kingston Cemetery, in St Mary’s Road, Kingston.

David-John, 62, passed away two weeks ago after losing his battle with cancer.

Kelly and six of her family and friends also raised more than £2,000 for Brain Tumour UK in memory of Kelly’s sister Tammy-Jo Fairweather, aged 31, who died of a brain tumour last November.

Kelly, 41, from Hilsea, said: ‘Taking part in this meant so much to me, it was an unbelievable experience.

‘I was only able to do a couple of weeks training because I had been looking after my dad. But I was going to finish this if it killed me or not. This was all in memory of the pair.’
