Hi everyone,

Next Sunday (4th October) would have been the re-arranged London Marathon. However, due to the ongoing pandemic the marathon is only taking place for elite athletes (sadly not me). With the open event taking place next October, which I will be training for! However, there is a virtual marathon taking place next Sunday for runners who still wish to take part.

So…… I have decided, with little training, to run 26.2 miles next Sunday from Torquay Sea Front to the St James school gates! I am passionate about raising money for the Smile Train UK, who help treat children who are born with Cleft lip and/or palates. Something I was not aware of until my son Evan was born last year with a cleft lip.

I have roped my family in to run some of the course with me (even my mum!).

Please can you donate towards this fantastic charity. And feel free to join me for part of the course if you wish!
