A 74-year-old British author, adventurer and marathon runner passed through Cambridgeshire this week, on her charity run from Sussex to Kathmandu.
Just a month into the challenge, Rosie Swale Pope MBE, was pictured on her way to Littleport by local, Stephen Biddle.
Rosie, who is taking on the challenge ‘Rosie Runs to Kathmandu - Reborn’ started the first leg of her journey on June 25, 2021.
She originally started the adventure in 2018, and was halfway across Turkey when Covid-19 hit Europe.
“She [Rosie] stopped to see if we had a particular tool to help fix a puncture,” said Stephen.
