I ran the London Marathon for the first time in 2015 and at the time, said it would be a once in a lifetime event for me! I soon realised though that once wasn't enough and I wanted to experience the whole thing again, but with a bit of a twist.  After some thought, I decided that as I was supporting my wife and the Barnsley Samaritans team, a great way to raise awareness and funds would be to attempt to break a Guinness World Record. I couldn't think of anything more fitting than to do it dressed as a telephone box, to promote the charity and the amazing work that they do.  I do have a personal target that I would like to beat, but the official time is 4:33:56.  Please help me to raise as much as I can for this very worthy cause and to help Barnsley Samaritans to continue providing support to those in emotional distress or despair.
Thank you!
