On Sunday 3rd October, Owen took on this year’s London Marathon. He ran the 26.2miles in 4 hours and 40 minutes: an absolutely incredible achievement given the 10 weeks he had to train!
Despite finding the final mile painful, he pushed through and has decided to enter the ballot for 2022, hoping to shave about an hour off his finishing time.
On top of training for the run, Owen’s also been busy fundraising, and hosted a comedy night at our local pub, The Bayshill. The night went well, raising over £450 in raffle tickets and burger sales. We’re still waiting for a final ticket sale total, but will publish that at a later date. We’d like to thank all of Owen’s supporters who donated BBQ food and raffle prizes, please see links to their website below.
Everyone at St V’s and St G’s would like to say a huge thank you to Owen, for taking on the challenge, with such short notice, to ensure we we’re still represented in London.
When we have official photos, we’ll post those along with the final fundraising total!
There is still time to donate and help Owen hit his target, so if you’d like to support him now he’s finished the marathon, please visit his Virgin Money Giving Page:
