On track to race against steam train
TEACHERS Kerry Heath- Smith and Louise McRitchie went full steam ahead as they took on the train in a run to raise money for Cotswold Care Hospice.
More than 150 runners took part in Race the Train which started and finished at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's station at Cheltenham Racecourse.
Kerry, from Cheltenham, is a teacher at Cotswold School and Louise, from Cheltenham, teaches at Pate's.
"We run every Saturday on Cleeve Hill so we thought it would be a challenge," said Kerry, who teaches maths.
