Kat Tindall and son Sam, 10, ran at home in Town Green, Alby, while her nephew William Howie, 21, completed it in Olney, Northamptonshire.

She said: “Sam wanted to do something for the NHS so we came up with the idea of doing a garden sponsored run.

“We enlisted my nephew William and decided to go for 25km, although none of us are runners.

“Will and I completed 10km each. We don’t have a large garden so my 10km was quite a challenge and included around 280 laps. Sam, who goes to Aldborough Primary School, did 5km, and we raised over £500 for NHS Charities Together.”

She added: “Sam and I occasionally run the Sheringham parkrun but have never managed the whole course without walking but we both jogged the whole time for this.”
