***UPDATE 14th October***
Marathon completed in 3h 39m 44secs
(this knocked 5 minutes off my PB).
IT was a VERY wet race, raining from start to finish.  There was one very tired and soggy pussycat at the end.

Please don't stop giving!  Every penny of sponsorship will help the lives of cats in the UK and Overseas.

Hi I'm Peter.  With Alison I run The Cat Gallery, a gift business for cat lovers and their feline friends.  

If you've enjoyed our Newsletters or Social Media output this year - why not make a small donation?
If you'd like to remember a departed feline friend, why not make give a few £'s and post a tribute to them on this page?
If you'd like to help more unwanted cats to find loving UK homes or if you just want to make the world a better place for cats to live in, a donation to this page will help.

Event details

Yorkshire Marathon Run 26.2 miles

Despite being in my 6th decade, I'll be pulling on the trusty trainers and trying to run 26.2 miles as fast as I can this Sunday.
Two years ago I promised to shave my head if I reached my fundraising target.  This year, if donations exceed my target, I promise to don my minimalist cat outfit (ears, face paint and long fluffy tail).
We have such fantastic customers I just know I'm going to need those ears and tail this weekend.  Please help me reach my target if you are able to.

Sorry I can’t send more. Ollie sends best wishes to Charlie: he knows what it’s like to be a “blocked” cat! Luckily 3 years of preventative medicine has kept him clear.

In memory of Caspar, a rescue cat with me for the last 4 and a half of his 16 years, died 14th August this year [2018]. Much missed.
