Bethan explained her strong family links to the Ramsey Lifeboat Station on the Isle of Man: ‘My grandfather Rev Dr Ewan Corlett, a naval architect, was Chairman of the Ramsey Lifeboat committee and then went on to be President. My grandmother was the Chairwoman of the Ramsey Ladies Lifeboat Guild, and my aunt is currently a member of that committee too. My father has also been involved in several projects building new lifeboat houses for the RNLI.’

As a keen rower and a former American Red Cross Lifeguard, Bethan feels very strongly about water safety and is passionate about raising money to support the life-saving work of the RNLI.

Commenting on her training so far, Bethan said: ‘I’m very new to running, when I started training properly the furthest I’d run was less than four miles! I am absolutely loving the training now. Running my first 10k was really motivational, showing myself I could really do this, and I ran a half-marathon just after Christmas which has really spurred me on. I have really loved getting the training in as part of my routine, plugging into my running playlist and hitting the road.

‘Now I’ve completed my 20 mile long training run I feel ready for the big day!’
