A massive thank you to our Run Wild Team who took part in this year’s 40th Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 4th October 2020, which took place up and down the country for the first time in its history.

Ritchi Edwards, Tracy Guild, Philip McCulloch, Ella Mutch and Sophie Orr all put their best foot forward and pounded the pavements to raise money to support our work.

For Ritchi, who ran from Witham, in Essex, to Colchester and back, in dreary conditions, and Tracy, who ran from Whitby to Scarborough in glorious sunshine, it was their first full marathon, so extra congratulations to you both.
