Michelle Whitehurst completed Comrades 2022 in South Africa
Michelle Whitehurst and Phil completed Comrades in South Africa with 10 minutes to go and within the 12-hour cut off challenge requirements.
Comrades Ultra Marathon is approximately 90km (56 miles) starting at city hall in Pietermaritzburg and finished at the Moses Mabhida in Durban, South Africa. The NHS has been a big part of their lives for the last 30 years through Michelle’s career, her role as public governor and her volunteering during COVID-19. Michelle said of her motivation;
“We have both seen the incredible work undertaken by all NHS staff and the £750 raised during this ultra-marathon is to support University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity and our wonderful hospitals. We are delighted to have completed this ultra-marathon, although it was the toughest challenge we have ever faced”.
