London Marathon

London Marathon 2021 for Hospice UK

 

Right now, hospice staff are at the forefront of the battle with COVID-19, continuing to care for our vulnerable people whilst also easing the burden on the NHS.  

Hospice UK is the national charity working for those experiencing dying, death and bereavement. We work for the benefit of people affected by death and dying, collaborating with our hospice members and other partners who work in end of life care.

I am a soon to be 40 year old Hospice Chaplain and Parish Priest and I am running the 2021 London Marathon on behalf of Hospice UK. 

Why?

Well, I have some previous experience of running 'Marathons'... when I was 10 years old I entered
a fun run in my home village of Shenstone. I can remember REALLY enjoying the first mile of this
six mile race... ; ) 

30 years later the Shenstone Fun Run remains the one and only race I have ever entered.
UNTIL NOW...! I am hoping to complete the London Marathon this year to help support the wonderful work of Hospice UK.  I mean, how hard can it be? It's only 26.2 miles... 

Will I do it?  Well... I will give it my best shot. I promise to train hard in preparation and keep you updated on how things are going along the way.
