It’s an honour to present our top team of 17 London marathon runners who’ll be pounding the streets this coming Sunday.
It’s an actual/virtual hybrid marathon this year, and we’re excited to have seven runners taking on the famed 26.2 mile route around central London, with an additional ten virtual runners setting out to cover the same gruelling distance from their own front doors. This makes it our biggest ever team taking part in the world’s biggest Marathon – talk about an epic event!
Taking to the streets of the capital are the amazing Andrew Greensmith (Red Kite Games), Mark Baldwin (New Star Games), Jim Jagger (Rockstar), Andrew Pooley (EA), Ed Rumley (EA), Andy Dunn (First Touch Games), James Pavitt (Sony) and Jordan Cross.
Our virtual runners hail from all over the country and will have 24 hours to complete their marathon by, walking, jogging or running their own routes. They’ll be joining the record 50,000 virtual participants, and the 50,000 who’ll be running the iconic marathon route from Blackheath to the Mall. Among our Virtual team we welcome Chris Mellor, Ian Goodall (Aardvark Swift) and Dave Blewett (Sumo), all running in Yorkshire, Ryan Bickham, Jonathan Woodhouse, Kelly-Sue Budde (Miniclip) and Joel Thomas in London, and Bob Young, Johnny Carberry, and our very own Nick Streeter (SpecialEffect) running in Oxfordshire.
We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our runners the very best of luck for Sunday. The money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of the severely disabled people we work with!
