As most of you know I’m on a quest to complete all the World Marathon Majors and although I’ve completed London 3 times in recent years (2014/2015 & 2017), the lure of running in arguably the world’s greatest marathon is too difficult to ignore.

In 2019 I am very proud to running in support of The Royal British Legion in tribute as always to my dear and very much missed (by so many) little Brother Lloydy.

I will be running 4 marathons in the Spring beginning with my Fifth Major – Tokyo on 3rd March, followed by Brighton on what would have been Lloydy’s 40th Birthday on 14th April, then London two weeks later and then Milton Keynes on 6th May.

You will know that Lloydy was killed in 2011 whilst on operations in Afghanistan. He loved his job, and made the ultimate sacrifice doing it. His passing left an enormous hole in the life's and hearts of all who knew and loved him and still continues to inspire so many.

I can't thank you all enough for the support I have been constantly shown, but please if you can, help me again to try and make a small difference. Please donate and celebrate a true hero, my little brother.

As always I will be constantly updating my 'blog on the bog' to keep you up to date with training and the misery of doing so during the winter: -

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving Page, your incredible donations and support make an enormous difference to those The Royal British Legion support, and by doing so you also help to keep my brothers memory alive, big love to you all xx
