Story

What's better than the sight of one bespectacled beanpole slogging their guts round 26.2 miles? The answer is of course: two bespectacled beanpoles slogging their guts round 26.2 miles.

This year's Manchester Marathon will be a grudge match between Jim and Cragg to see who'll be first to fling themselves over the finish line and into the waiting arms of the St John's Ambulance service (or nearest Wetherspoons). Jim is the current Marathon Record Holder with a PB of 3hrs 52 mins, whilst Cragg is on the leaderboard with 3hrs 57 mins... Will we hold hands over the finish line, or spend the last miles trying to trip each other up to snatch the crown? Only time will tell...

We will be running the Manchester Marathon on Sunday 19 April and would be very grateful for any sponsorship you can prize from your pockets. We are running in aid of the Refugee Council, who need all the funds they can get to support refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. At a time when these groups are under increasing pressure in the media, through government austerity policies, and in the war-torn areas of the world, the Refugee Council delivers a range of specialist projects to support refugees.  These include: employment and move on advice;  therapeutic support; destitution services; support for separated children whose special needs are not covered by mainstream services; and work to achieve a fairer and more humane asylum system. 

More information on the work the Refugee Council do can be found here: www.refugeecouncil.org.uk

Thank you for all your support.
