Run for James
On 27 May 2018, Helen, Wayne and James ran the Edinburgh Marathon and Louise and Toria ran the Half Marathon in May in memory of James Griffiths
Donations accepted until 27-11-2018
UPDATE: Everyone finished!!!!!!!
On 27th May, Helen, Wayne and James put themselves through some serious pain but all finished the Edinburgh marathon safely. We were extremely lucky with the weather on marathon day, with a mist keeping the temperature down through most of the run. Louise and Toria set off at 8am and completed the half marathon in a little over 3hrs. This was a great time considering Louise had little time to prepare and was ill for a couple weeks leading up it! Wayne, Helen and James set off at 10am, with James intending to run to around midway due his lack of training. However, James decided to carry on and managed to run to around the 17 mile mark before walking to the end, finishing in 5hrs 44min. Helen did brilliantly, with her training really paying off, finishing in 4hrs. Wayne finished in 4hrs 18mins which was also an amazing achievement considering he only had 9 weeks to train!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their amazing support in helping us reach our fundraising target. We have some additional funds to bank which should push the total well over £2,000 with Gift Aid. This will help the work of the three charities we were raising these funds for: Royal Brompton and Harefield Charities, the Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital and the British Heart Foundation.
I would also take this opportunity to thank my colleague Nick Mott and family who very kindly sponsored us £75. These funds have gone directly to the charities and do not show on the total.
