The Kidney Fund 2015 team


To date a fantastic £30,240.00 had been raised by our nine strong 2014 Marathon team – Joanna Bending; Sophie Blaker; Kirsty Eaton;  Charlie Gilmartin;  Pauline Hopkins;  Michael Tyler;  Alicia Martin;  Lucy Vanson;  and Stuart McSweeney (who unfortunately had to pull out at the last moment due to injury).  Many many thanks to all of them for all the hard work they put into their training and sponsorship.  It is very much appreciated.



2013 Congratulations to our four runners who managed to complete the race on Sunday!  We have had a terrible year for injuries.  Two of our runner, Nicky and Charles were nursing injuries through the race, and four runners – Sophie, Craig, Stuart and Peter had to drop out just a few weeks prior to the event after enduring  all that training in the horrible weather we have had during the early part of this year.  Our commiserations to the 4 who couldn’t run, and our CONGRATULATIONS to the four who did.  Jan completed in 4 hours 2 minutes and outdid her personal best by 12 minutes.  Well done to you Jan!!!
