Pippa Middleton takes part in fun run in Newbury

PIPPA Middleton swapped the snow-covered slopes of Norway for the muddy paths of Donnington Castle today (Wednesday) for a fun run in aid of Mary Hare School for Deaf Children.

The 7K walk and run saw Pippa take on the off-road course along with staff and pupils at the school before helping to hand out water to other runners along the route.

The 32-year-old has been an ambassador for the school since 2013 and made light work of the route around Donnington Castle just days after competing in a cross-country skiing race in Norway.

The event was to raise funds for the school’s swimming pool appeal with pupils and teachers so far raising more than £2,000 in sponsorship.
