We had our biggest team of runner’s yet for 2019’s Virgin London Marathon. So far, they have raised over £23,000! Here’s what they had to say about the experience…

Paul Cecil, Waltham Cross 

“In these troubled times we live we are made to believe we should lose our faith in love and humanity. This race proves without doubt there is an abundance of both. I am proud to be a small part of this great event.”

Chloe Clark, Grays

“Thank you for cheering me on the day! It really gave me the boost I needed for those last few miles! Thank you so much to you all for giving me the opportunity to take part – our family are forever thankful to your charity and I was honoured to be able to give something back!”

Anna Benton, Colchester

“I raised over a thousand pounds for the air ambulance, so it was so worth it. Sadly, they couldn’t save my dad, but hopefully they can save thousands of others. I love them!”

Ben Usher, Ware

“It was a pleasure supporting Essex & Herts Air Ambulance by running the Virgin London Marathon. The experience, crowds and atmosphere were amazing! I managed to complete it in 3 hours 27 minutes and 43 seconds which was a massive achievement for me. Raising money that I know will make a difference really spurred me on, especially in the last 6 miles where my legs were very heavy and I struggled to keep my pace going. My fundraising is now up to £1,695, and with some offline donations to be collected I’m hoping to crack the £2000 mark in the next couple of weeks.”
