Lisa Peck of YCO writes in to say proudly that the YCO London Marathon team all successfully completed last Sunday’s Marathon. New runners Portia Hart and Katrina Arens completed the race in 4h 10 and 4h 34 respectively, while Gary Wright (taking part for the third year running) and Glenn Trunley both set personal bests. There’s a special commendation to Carl Gardner for finishing in a fantastic 3h 29 and Mike Goulden who unfortunately blew out his knee at the 16 mile mark but managed to hobble round the rest of the course to finish in a very painful 7 hours.
This effort means that YCO has now raised over £110,000 for the WellChild Charity in the past three years and many more donations are still coming in. If you’d like to donate, click on http://www.justgiving.com/ycolondonmarathon2009/
