A STUDENT is running a marathon with her dad keeping the promise she made to him 10 years ago.

Kelly Hull, 21, from Sidcup, will be running the Edinburgh marathon in May with her 50-year-old dad, Steven, in a bid to raise money for a trip to Zambia to teach sport and HIV awareness to children. The Loughborough University student also ran the Brighton half marathon last Sunday and is due to complete the Hastings half marathon next month as part of her bid to fund the £1,500 three-month trip.

The former county netballer said: "When I was 10 or 11 my dad worked out he would be 50 when I was 21 and I promised we would do a marathon together then.

"I am really excited about going to Zambia but really apprehensive because I think it will be a challenging experience. I am excited to put myself outside of my comfort zone so I will learn something new about myself. The last time I ran a half marathon was three years ago and I promised myself not to do it again. It was just too hard. But this marathon is different because I am doing it with my dad and for a cause so there is no way I am not going to finish it - even if I have to crawl it."
