Watkins April Marathon Challenge 2015

PAUL WATKINS, Tracy Watkins

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Yes, it's true, we set ourselves a joint challenge to each run a marathon in April 2015 to raise funds for The Berkshire MS Therapy Centre (BMSTC), a fantastic independent charity that provides therapies & support for local people living with MS. 


On Sunday 26th April Paul took to the streets of the capital in his first London Marathon.  Conditions were perfect for running & despite a nervous night with no sleep, Paul smashed his previous Marathon time at Bournemouth of 5.35.17, completing London in 5.11.13 :).  The photo shows us both at the finish. Following on from her London Marathon experience in April 2013, Tracy ran the Brighton Marathon on April 12th.  It felt much tougher than London - hotter, hillier & windier (!) but she was thrilled to record a PB time of 5.50.28 which is over 3 mins faster than London. 

Our page will remain open for a little while longer & we would love your support if you are able to help. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us & donations will be quickly processed & passed to BMSTC. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on BMSTC's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support & thank you for any donations.  Thanks so much from Team Watkins: Paul & Tracyx
