The daughter of the widely-respected Kerry Coggle, who died last year, will be taking part in a trailblazing challenge next week in his memory.

Megan Coggle, 26, will be running the 10km Trailblazer challenge at Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire, on June 28 to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The trailblazer will see Megan run through the park on alternative terrains, rather than a traditional flat road race.

Megan, who works as a waitress at Kenwick Park Hotel, has been training at the leisure facilities there and has given special thanks to her personal trainer, Martyn Margarson.

Megan has already raised more than £100 in memory of her dad, and hopes to surpass her target of £200.

She said: “I decided to go for a small target, and anything extra will be a bonus.

“My dad died due to heart problems, and I wanted to do something in his memory and raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

“He was a Louth legend and very well known in the Town for being a great estate agent, a great family man, and full of life.

“He loved his family and he lived life to the full.

“He always put other people before himself and always tried to put smiles on peoples faces. He loved telling people jokes - even if they were bad!

“He also founded Louth Town Football Club, which was his passion and pride and joy, so with out him there would be no team today.”

Kerry Coggle died suddenly in March 2013, leaving behind daughter Megan, son Tom and his wife Sandra.
