Susie the marathon knitter’s doing it for her mum.

Susie Hewer, the ‘extreme knitting redhead’ has run over 100 marathons in memory of her mum Peggy, who died with vascular dementia in 2005.

And if that’s not enough, she knits while she runs – and has set the Guinness World Record for knitting the longest scarf during a marathon!

"I cared for mum at home and having watched her gradually fade away with vascular dementia, I can’t rest until I have raised more money for research into this dreadful condition. I’ll continue running for as long as I can."
