Thanking our 2013 London Marathon runners

Posted in: News, by Bridge2Aid Team, on 10th October 2013 | 0 comments

We want to say a huge B2A thank you to our 3 Virgin London Marathon 2013 runners: James Macdonald, Paul Abrahams and Tim Molony.

26.2 miles is no small feat for any individual – athletic or not – but all three of our runners excelled and after a lot of hard work and training, all completed the marathon in exceptional times.

FMC’s James Macdonald commented: ‘What an amazing experience! I loved every minute of it – up until mile 16 when it got really hard! The following 10 miles were very difficult indeed. Although I’d be lying if I said I would love to do it again, it is certainly something that will live with me forever. The feeling of accomplishment when you cross that line is overwhelming. Running for Bridge2Aid was an absolute pleasure – the work they do in Tanzania is truly inspiring and it helped me to get through to the finish line. I had hoped for a slightly better time but in the end it was all about finishing having done very little training due to injury. I am very proud to be a London Marathon runner and proud to have represented Bridge2Aid.’

Paul Abrahams: 4h 30m
Tim Molony: 3h 54m
James Macdonald: 4h 40m
On Monday, 29th April the ballot opens for the Virgin London Marathon 2014.
