In 2019, CAIRN challenged me to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October and the London Marathon in April 2020 in a combined time of less than 5:5 hours. I managed to complete the first part of the challenge in 1:37:47 but then came Covid and I'm still waiting to run the second part!

Fortunately, I have a place in the actual London event which takes place on October 3rd. I am greatly looking forward to it and have every hope of managing to finish inside the challenge time. If you felt able to sponsor me (and thank you to all of you who have already done so) I would be most grateful.
