Story

Thanks for visiting Patrick and David's fundraising page.

On Sunday 11th October we are hitting the streets of Oxford to take on the Oxford Half Marathon to raise money for Sobell House Hospice.

Mum/Ros spent her last week in Sobell House earlier this summer, after a brave and defiant battle with cancer. The Sobell House team gave fantastic care at such a difficult time. So we're running in memory of Mum/Ros and to help raise funds so other families can benefit from the same compassionate care in the future.

Now, you may well think of us as two finely tuned athletes, but this will be David's first half marathon and just Patrick's second. So we are heading into (almost) uncharted territory. Which means we welcome and positively encourage your support in the form of sponsorship donations, however small or gargantuan*. 

For our part, we are going to train hard, run hard and wear a gorgeous yellow polyester vest. And if you are itching to pore over every detail of every training run, then it's your lucky day:
