Rich runs the London Marathon

Richard Turner

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page!

As some of you may already know, I have foolishly signed up to take part in the 2012 London Marathon.

At the age of 17 I completed the Burnham Half Marathon in under 2 hours, and now, 8 years later, I attempt to run a full Marathon in under 4 hours (in some ridiculous attire no doubt). Please help me achieve this lifetime goal of mine by sponsoring me. All proceeds go to the magnificent homeless charity Shelter, so there's no excuse!

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. All sponsors will receive an (optional) song and dance.
