Each year i have entered the ballot in May and in October i have always received the letter saying sorry you have been unsuccessful !!!  Last October when the ballot results came out i received a letter saying YES - you're in !!
At first i was shocked, scared and overwhelmed as i am NOT a runner !! but now i am embracing it !!!

As this is going to be one of the hardest events i have ever done physically and mentally i feel it is worthy of asking people to support me by donating a few pounds to my chosen charity the 


... and in return i will "bust my balls" training , and completing the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 28th April 2019  🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ :-)

Event details

The iconic Virgin London Marathon  - 26.2 miles

A team of amazing people, a voluntary organisation responsible for covering the central section of the Brecon Beacons including South Wales’ highest mountain, Pen y Fan, Cribyn and Corn Du as well as the Ystradfellte waterfalls.
They cover from Pen y Fan to the coast, from Cardiff to Newport, and from the Rhondda to Abertillery. They help everyone and anyone - walkers, climbers, trail runners, ultra runners, riders (and support the other teams over the Brecon Beacons when necessary). They cover Bike park wales & Cwmcarn forest for the mountain bikers amongst us. In addition to this they help search for missing vulnerable people, especially people with dementia that may have gone awol.
AND they provided 4x4 assistance transporting essential NHS staff into and out of the local Hospitals in the snowy weather - all of this is for free and in their own time !!

So please please help me and donate anything you can to help these amazing people save lives - it could be me or you that might need their help one day !!
