WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN...

We decided that running a marathon last year from Padua to Venice, suffering ligament tears, blisters, siezed knees and detatched toenails was not enough punishment for two middle-aged sinners so WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!

We managed to run the Venice Marathon in 2011 in four and a half hours, and with your generous help we raised over £5000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

We would love to be able to raise £5000 this year too and would appreciate any amount you can donate to this brilliant charity.

Donating through JustGiving is totally secure. Your details are safe and once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. Please make sure you opt for Gift Aid so that Great Ormond Street can get the tax reclaimed on eligible donations from UK taxpayers.

Thank you so much!

Russell Norman and Richard Beatty

WE DID IT!! Yes, we ran the 2012 Venice Marathon in a reasonably decent time of under 5 hours despite the bitter 50kmh winds, icy temperatures of 2ºC, the horrible causeway challenge, blisters, bruises, torn ligaments, detached toenails... Thanks SO MUCH for your support. xxxx
