Story

I am delighted I completed my 19th London Marathon in a row on Sunday at a time of 4:31:06.

Conditions this year were quite pleasant although a little cold at the beginning – much better than last year which was extremely hot so I beat my time by 40 minutes.


As always the crowds were incredible and most supportive, and it was great to see so many friends along the route who spurred me on, particularly from the Folkestone Running Club.

The atmosphere was fantastic, and I ran non-stop which is always my aim.


My best time was in 2002 at 3 hours, 23 minutes.

I am most grateful to all who have supported me with sponsorship for Kent Association for the Blind (KAB) in particular those listed on my Just Giving page. Last year I raised just over £4,000 and in total I was delighted as it has clipped over £80,000 over the last 19 years. It is still possible to sponsor online by visiting my website www.justgiving.com/rayjohnson which also gives further information of how you can donate.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Kent Association for the Blind will receive your money faster and, if you are a taxpayer, an extra 25% in tax will be added to your donation.

You may if you prefer forward a cheque payable to KAB for my attention via my office at Independent Insurance Services, Church House, 136 Sandgate Road, Folkestone, Kent CT20 2BN.

Please pass this link on as every donation is appreciated.

I would like to say a special thanks to the following for supporting me along the way:

Independent Insurance Services
Insure Green
Roger De Haan Charitable Trust
McCabe Ford Williams
