18 year old Honor McFarlane from Radcot, Oxfordshire, will be one of our youngest London Marathon runners this year as she takes on the challenge of a lifetime to raise funds in memory of her best friend.
Honor, who is a student at Abingdon and Witney College said: “I chose to run the marathon for MRF because in January 2015 my gorgeous friend Abigail Kelly died from meningitis aged 13. It all happened very quickly, within 24hrs. We had been the best of friends since we were seven years old and growing up we did everything together from climbing trees to riding ponies. She was not just a best friend but more a sister.
