A huge congratulations and thank you to the incredible Clelie Medlock who completed the South Coast Challenge 100 kilometres course in 16 hours and seven minutes.
Clelie now has just three events left to complete her seven challenges which range from half-marathons to 100K ultras as she fundraises for Jigsaw (South East) bereavement
The Oxted based teaching assistant first contacted Jigsaw (South East) to find out about support for her four children after the death of their father in 2017. She said: “Nothing prepares you for the loss and shock. As a parent I witnessed my children grieve in totally different ways. Just knowing that I could speak to someone, who reassured me that what we’re going through is normal and who listened to me, has been a great support.”
Clelie’s battled through the pain barrier to complete some of her races, but has never thought of giving up, though she has had to change some of her original planned races due to illness.
