Why I'm doing it
St Margaret’s Hospice are a fantastic charity supporting so many local people through very difficult times, and they have a particularly special meaning in my heart being there at the end for both my own father and my father in-law.
Please help me to support this most deserving organisation by pledging as much or as little as you feel comfortable. I am aiming to raise £100 for every mile of the marathon distance – so a total of £2622, between us I’m sure we can smash it!!
Family and friends would probably say I was an experienced fun runner having been pounding 'terra ferma' for about 15 years now, and in that time completing many events from park runs to ultra-marathons, with a full Ironman thrown in for good measure.
But for me this is the BIG ONE – not because it's the iconic London Marathon, but because I have the honour of being selected to run on behalf of such a worthy cause.
