I’m running the london marathon for Brathay Trust because I’m crackers
Running a marathon is an enormous personal achievement. Our London Marathon Golden Bond runners not only complete one of the most famous races in the world, but also raise funds to support some of the UK's most vulnerable children and young people.
Charity Registration No. 1021586
I first started running in early 1997, primarily to keep fit as I had fallen out of love with cycling and needed to do something as I love food! In 1998 I ran my first event The Great North Run, as a fundraising activity for Leukaemia research and Anthony Nolan after my brother was diagnosed with the disease. He had a bone marrow transplant and made a full recovery and I caught the bug for running.
This carried on for a few years and in 2003 when I was 30 I ran my first London Marathon. Naivety is the best training tool. In 2013, another milestone birthday and another London marathon. Since then I have completed another 4 marathons including the tough Windermere marathon in 2014.
My marathon running achievements to date are:
2017 London and Chester
I have been a supported of the work of The Brathay Trust for th last 5 years raising funds for the charity. It is so inspiring the testimonies of the children and young adults whose lives are turned around by Brathay.
