Story

All proceeds from the sale of my book, From Parkrun To London Marathon, will be donated to the charity, Save The Rhino and this page has been set up so that I will have a transparent representation of the money that has been raised for Save The Rhino from sales of the book and donations. If you've bought the book then you will see the royalties from that purchase displayed here. If you've bought the book and want to show your appreciation still further then please feel free to make extra donations here.

The experience of running the London Marathon is all kinds of wonderful, topped off with lots of delicious amazing and served up with a side order of downright incredible. This book follows my journey to the marathon as I pound the streets, dress up in a rhino costume to visit eight different parkruns, and try to think of lots of interesting ways to raise money for Save The Rhino International. When I decided to run the London Marathon I wanted to immerse myself in the experience as much as possible. Part of that immersion was to read every account I could find from people who had been involved themselves. I found several existing books, which I review in these pages, but I wanted more and realised that other people might feel the same. This is my attempt to give you a little of what I craved at that time. This book describes in detail the experience of running the marathon from the point of view of quite a slow plodder. It will give you a real flavour of what it feels like to take part and a taste of the joy of it all.
