Charity Fundraising: Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2012

on March 16, 2012

Update 27/05/12:

Well the events have been completed and preliminary results are in:

Nathan ran 1.5km in 8min 8sec and was in 170th position

Peter ran 10km in 53m 37sec and was in 336th position

At the time of writing this update a grand total, including gift aid, of £1,341.25 was raised for our two childrens cancer charities! That’s absolutely brilliant!

If you would still like to donate then it is possible to do so for a further 3 months on the Virgin Money Giving website.

Many, many thanks to all who sponsored/donated!!



Update 10/05/12:

Just over two weeks to go and training has been progressing. I have been out running on a frequent basis and have managed to up the distance over time such that I have now completed 3 runs of just over 10km at this point, with an aim to do some more before the big day!

Nathan has also been out practising his pacing and has done very, very well!



Original post:

Peter and Nathan are hoping to raise money for two special charities, CLIC Sargent and Sick Kids Friends Foundation (specifically Ward 2), by taking part in events which are part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2012.

We would love you to sponsor us at

We would be very grateful if you would also encourage your friends and family to consider sponsoring us as well.

Many thanks!
