Congratulations to our London Marathon runners!
On Sunday 23rd April, ten London Marathon runners successfully crossed the finish line for Shaftesbury Young People. Our fastest runner was able to complete his run under 3 hours and 30minutes. They all finished according to their predicted times and there were no significant injuries.
After the marathon, runners came to visit our stall at St. James’s Park, where they could enjoy some refreshments and meet with their family and friends. They shared their experience with our volunteer’s team, who took a few pictures with them before they headed home for a well-deserved rest.
Not only have they made an incredible effort running 26.2 miles, but they have also fundraised an amazing £14,617 for our young people! Besides, six runners have even exceeded their initial pledge, the top three raising over £1,500 each!
Thank you to all of our runners for such a wonderful day.
Looking forward to 2018 London Marathon!
