My story

[p]2nd Update:[/p][p]Time: 1.51.00 [/p][p]521st out of 1620[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p]How was the weather?[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p]Update:[/p][p]You will be able to see the final results here and I think there will be some live updates during the event itself - look for bib number 487[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p]I will be running the Leicester Half Marathon 31st Oct 2021 for Macmillan Cancer Support, for the benefit of close family members and everyone else living with cancer. [/p][p]I've never done a sponsored anything like this before so your donations will help keep me honest; there's no backing out of it now! If I can do it in under 2 hours I will be very happy.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The organisers website:[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]The route, to see where I'll be running:[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]My Strava Profile, to see if I'm keeping up with training:[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p]I will also try to post a link to track my progress in real time on the day if you want to watch. Might not be very entertaining, watching a dot move along a map, but I guarantee it's cheaper than Sky Sports.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The event isn't listed on this Virgin website so that's why it just says 'local run', but it is a proper organised event. [/p][p]Virgin giving are the suggested fundraising website for Macmillan, so that's why it's on here rather than other fundraising websites. "Donations on Virgin Money Giving are subject to a 2% platform fee, and a 2.5% payment processing fee. There are no monthly charges for charities, or any charges on Gift Aid, and now supporters can elect to cover the costs for the charity when donating."[/p][p][br][/p][p]DON'T FORGET TO GIFT AID YOUR DONATION WHEN ASKED[/p][p]I have paid to enter the event myself so you can do Gift Aid[/p][p][br][/p][p]If you give any amount: thank you.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Rich[/p][p][br][/p][p]From Macmillan:[/p][p]We're here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support.

Thank your mum for her email telling me of your work and achievement on the run. Well done! Your mum and I go were at school together. The last time I saw you, you were very little - and asleep! All of us with Cancer need the support. Thanks!
