HUGE CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS FROM ALL OF US TO OUR WONDERFUL RUNNERS: TOM LAWRENCE, JEN ROBERTS, CHRIS FORSYTHE, ANDREW LOPES, DINO MARKANTONIS AND RACHEL HAHN.
They all completed the great race on Sunday 23rd April, having raised a huge amount of money to help to pay for our five new playgrounds. They were wonderfully enthusiastic about the endless training and the race itself, despite it being so very tough.
Here are some of their post-race comments:
“The race was gorgeous and the support from the crowd along the whole route was unbelievable. My body had decided to give me a whole load of issues which made it a huge mental challenge to finish but I did finish in 3:55, so quite proud to have got that done.”
“What an amazing experience! The crowds were so encouraging. I finished in 4:37.”
“Finished, showered and clutching a flash of champagne! I had some knee trouble but finished in 4:24!”
“Ok… was tough! My chip didn’t work so I don’t know my time… think about 4:30. Legs sore now!”
“What an amazing experience – the crowds are unbelievable in London! Finished in a time of 4:25– the last 20kms were a big push! Time to settle in for an early night of recovery!”
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to run. It was a fantastic day and the hardest and most fulfilling thing I have ever done!”
