Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On the 30th October I will be taking part in a marathon in Wales. I have been preparing for this for eighteen months and have suddenly realised that this could also be an opportunity to raise some funds for the Exmouth Community College bursary scheme, the Magnolia Incentive.
About the race
The inaugural Snowdonia Marathon was held in 1982, and was conceived as a dramatic alternative to the numerous city and town races becoming so popular. The demanding and spectacular route, encircling Snowdon, Wales' and England's highest peak, has given the event a unique place in the annual marathon calendar ever since.
In a 2007 poll by Runners World Magazine, the Snowdonia Marathon was voted the best Marathon in the UK. This is somewhat ironic since it is also regarded as one of the most difficult! Its success has been credited to three things; the beautiful scenery, the runners that organize the race and the hospitality of the local people.
So please dig deep and donate now.
