The London Marathon will take place on the 26th of April 2015. It is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.
Vicky Quantrill says “I am running the London Marathon in memory of a dear friend and fellow runner Richard Blake who sadly passed away last year. Richard was a dedicated and exceptional runner for his age. Running was one of his passions in life and he had been very much looking forward to running the London Marathon himself this year.
As a fitting tribute and in an effort for some good to come out of such a tragic situation I have decided to raise some sponsorship for charity. I have chosen a local based charity near where I live in Great Yarmouth to benefit – East Coast Hospice”
Jeff Wood- Community Fundraiser for ECH would like to thank Vicky, and wishes her the best of luck in her training, fundraising, and in beating her personal best!
You can sponsor Vicky through Virgin Money Giving and donations will be quickly processed and passed to East Coast Hospice.
