After weeks of preparation and training, Becky Brewerton crossed the finish line in the Windsor half-marathon on Sunday and raised £2,607 for Williams Syndrome Foundation.
Becky was one of 6,000 runners who took part in the 13.1 mile long race under the blazing sunshine in Windsor Great Park and she completed the race in 2 hours, 26 minutes and 49 seconds.
Becky said: “I’m so chuffed; that was by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done and much tougher than any event or Solheim Cup I’ve ever played in.”
The two-time Solheim Cup player, in 2007 and 2009, was inspired by her best friend Danielle Thwaites (née Masters) and her young son Stanley, who was born with Williams Syndrome, a rare neurodevelopment disorder which can cause heart problems, development and growth difficulties.
Becky admits that she wasn’t the fittest on tour and running the half marathon was a huge challenge but the popular and big-hearted player is already looking forward to her next test: winning her third Ladies European Tour trophy at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France at Golf de Chantaco this weekend.
