The nights are drawing in. We’re approaching the comfort blanket of Autumn where the world slows down a bit and we want to curl up on the sofa, in front of Netflix and a cosy fire. But while we’re all settling down in our slippers, we have a team of dentists donning their running shoes and braving the drizzle and darker mornings to train for the London Marathon in October.
This will be the biggest marathon ever staged in the world. A total of 100,000 runners are taking part with a 50/50 split of virtual and real-life event runners.
COVID19 hugely affected our ability to fundraise in 2020. We’d love it if the London Marathon became our biggest fundraising event ever. The individual runners are looking to hit a collective target of over £8,000.
