Thanks to everyone for your support for Home-Start Butser and the wonderful work they do in the East Hampshire region.
I completed the marathon in 4 hours 42 minutes.  Donations can still be made up to 10 October so please do consider supporting this very worthwhile cause.

Event details

New Forest Marathon

Home-Start Butser was established in 1998 by the local community to support families with young children.  It covers a large area of East Hampshire, from Greatham in the North to Rowlands Castle in the South.
All proceeds raised from my marathon will go to Home-Start Butser, so please contribute any amount, large or small.   You could choose an amount per mile e.g. £2 per mile would be £52 or just an amount for the whole event.  
The event starts at 09:00 on 10 September.  My target time is 5 hours so I hope to finish by 14:00.   If you would like to come and cheer me along, especially for the last 5 miles which I think I will find really tough, please do so!
