Team story

[p][b]The "Lockdown" Marathon 2020 for the NHS[/b][/p][p]Channelling our daily lockdown exercise to help the amazing NHS, we will be running a 26 mile marathon using a GPS tracker - [i]that will trace the letters NHS when uploaded onto a map of London.[/i][/p][p]Our route will pass by King's College Hospital where fantastic NHS doctors, nurses, cleaners, ambulance drivers and administration staff have continuosly dedicated themselves to treating many suffering CV19 patients.[/p][p]We will run the specially designed full marathon route (photo below), whilst maintaining social distancing, on 20 June 2020.[/p][p]We will upload our tracks onto Strava.com afterwards to make a wonderful heart-felt (and leg-felt) message of support for our fantastic NHS.[/p][p]Please sponsor us at this page. Thank you![/p][p][b]About us:[/b][/p][p]I was inspired to create the NHS Strava route after reading about Captain Tom Moore's epic achievement. I have enlisted a band of lockdown exercisers and thwarted London Marathon runners including Susie Pajares, Tom Fender, Ben Grew and Steve Penketh. We all live within a short jog of King's College Hospital, London which will be at the heart of the "H" of our marathon.[/p]
