Mark Burrell's 3 World Marathon Majors 2017

Mark Burrell

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.  This year, after running the 2016 VMLM in 4hrs 3 mins then a curtailed 2016 running plan and 2 knee operations in Sept and November, I am running even more UltraBonkers events, still supporting the great work of The Stroke Association... just THREE World Marathon Majors in 2017!

Why?  Well, every year in the UK around 127,000 people have a stroke, that's about one every 3 mins 27 secs!  Also, closer to home, my partner Debs' Mum, Judy, died of a stroke at the far too early an age of 71 and my inspirational Dad, George, was eventually taken out by a stroke at the age of 94 having successfully controlled angina and other heart issues for some 25 years!  So, in their memory, I'd like to run again and fund raise for The Stroke Association to support their research and better stroke care work as I run the:

  • Reading Half Marathon in March
  • Virgin Money London Marathon in April
  • Edinburgh Marathon Team RElay  in May
  • Endure24 (24 hour, solo, endurance trail run) in June
  • Maidenhead Half Marathon in September
  • Berlin Marathon in September (my "A" race)
  • Basingstoke Half Marathon in October, and
  • Chicago Marathon in October

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. MARK
