On Sunday 24 April, seven amazing supporters took on the world’s most iconic running race, The Virgin London Marathon, hoping to raise £10,000 for donkeys and mules in need worldwide.
The weather on the day provided almost perfect running conditions. It was cold with a quick burst of hail early on in the morning but by the time our runners set off, the clouds had cleared and there was a bit of sunshine coupled with a light breeze. It was a little chilly for spectators but perfect for our runners.
This is my final blog before I face the challenge of completing the 26.2 mile course of the London Marathon on Sunday 24 April in aid of The Donkey Sanctuary. Before I have even taken that first step over the starting line, I know this has been the most incredible journey I have ever been on. My training miles now equates to over 12 full marathons.
