Support our Virgin Money London Marathon Runners

Why the London Marathon?

 

Because wellness matters…. 

 

At Thembalitsha Foundation we aim to surround our team with a system of support so they, in turn, may provide the highest quality care through the mind, body and heart to children and families we serve.

Thembalitsha’s team of virtual and in-person runners are looking for you to join forces and support them in running 26.2 miles.

 

Will you help us reach our runner’s fundraising goal by the 3rd of October?

ADAM

IN PERSON RUNNER

I first heard of Thembalitsha several years ago through an old PT (Personal Training) client and good friend and have always wanted to do more to help this fantastic charity. 

I have always been passionate about fitness and sport and luckily combine this with my career. When I learned about the opportunity to run the London marathon this year it was the perfect chance to combine my work and sport whilst raising a good amount of money for the charity. My aim is to complete the event in under 4 hours to make it even more challenging. I feel very privileged to be representing and running for Thembalitsha in person and being an #active4hope ambassador in the UK. 

You can follow my training on Strava at https://www.strava.com/athletes/4332047 and on Instagram @cotswold_pt

SAM

VIRTUAL MARATHON RUNNER

I started running in 2009. Since then, I have gone to complete a good number of ultra marathons and standard marathons. I am a long distance runner who enjoys running 30km, 42km and above. I run not to win a race but to test the limit of my human ability.

CRAIG

VIRTUAL MARATHON RUNNER

I'm Craig and now that I'm "the other side of 50" I need extra motivation to get off the sofa. I ran the London marathon in 2018 and there's nothing quite like the buzz you get running with so many people. With Covid still present the virtual marathon seemed like a great alternative so I signed up. 

 

Always easier to do things with a buddy so Paul and I are meeting up every Sunday morning to pound the pavements steadily increasing our mileage from 5 miles to the end goal of 26.2 miles. If we can do it anybody can - it's mind over matter!

 

We hope to persuade our friends to part with some ££'s too so that the Thembalitsha team can carry on their good work in my home country of South Africa.
