GUESS MY FINISHING TIME AND BE IN WITH A CHANCE OF WINNING A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE!!

On Sunday, 23rd April 2017, I will be proudly running the London Marathon in memory of my beautiful daughter Elsie.  Elsie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) aged 6 years old and very sadly died just nine months later.

I've decided to fundraise in a slightly different way this time as you have all been so generous over the last five years and I'm forever grateful!

This year simply guess my finishing time and donate exactly that amount! Who ever guesses closest will win a bottle of champagne!

What you need to do:

1. For example, if you think I’m going to finish the Marathon in 4h 35mins and 14 seconds enter a donation of £4.35 and in the comments box state the full finishing time including seconds e.g. 4:35:14


2. It's important you include seconds in your guess as there may be a flurry of guesses around a similar time and this will help to pick out a winner.  If you don't include seconds and just state 4:35 I will assume you mean 4:35:00.


3. If more than two people guess the correct time then I will pull a name out of a hat to establish who wins the bottle of champagne!


4. You can have as many goes as you like, but each guess must be accompanied by its own separate donation.


5. You may donate guesses on Marathon day itself (Sunday, 23rd April) but not after midday when perhaps I'll be at the half way mark, or maybe I won't?!  Don't want to give to much away in terms of timings...

But I will give you a couple of clues..
In 2015, I finished in 4:32 and in 2016 In finished in 4:11
Good luck!

Of course you are welcome to make a regular donation that doesn't equate to a guess of my finishing time but remember to be in with a chance of winning the bottle of champagne you will also need to include a guess of my finishing time in the comments box!

20.04.17 Good luck anita! My guess is 4.00 -) xox

20.04.17 You're amazing. Just running it for the third time without a set target would be impressive enough, but I think you're going to smash your PB. My guess is 4'08"32. Three mins is a lifetime in those last 6 miles! Sending loads of love and luck B xxx

20.04.17 Because I also think it'll take you 20 hours!!

18.04.17 4.4.44 - good luck and I hope it's not too sunny. Either way you're gonna nail it!

18.04.17 I guess 4.29.04. Go n-eiri an bothar leat - in Irish this means 'Good Luck' but literally translated means 'may the road rise to meet you'. Quite apt I think. The best of luck Anita, your fundraising achievement to date is simply amazing.

18.04.17 My guess is 4 hours, 10 minutes and 17 seconds. Good luck!!

18.04.17 I am betting you'll do it in 4 hrs 2 mins and 44 seconds - good luck!!!
