AN INTREPID mum has warmed up for her wedding next week by taking part in the Darlington Parkrun in a white veil and ‘bride-to-be’ sash.

Katherine Workman is finally marrying Simon Jones at Hall Garth Golf and Country Club Hotel next Saturday after the wedding was delayed by the pandemic.

And Katherine got a big cheer from fellow runners this morning before completing the 5k course in Darlington’s South Park.

Katherine said: “It’s normally Simon who does the Parkrun but he gave up his place this morning to let me run while he looked after the kids – that’s love for you!

“It was really frustrating when the wedding had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, so it will be nice to finally be able to go ahead.”

Katherine and Simon have two children – Mollie, eight, and Jude, four.

Mollie made headlines of her own in 2020 when she was inspired by Captain Tom Moore to run two miles round her garden and raised £777 for the NHS. (See story)
