I must be mad... the London Landmarks Half Marathon and the Great North Run in 2020!

On the 3rd December 2019, my partner’s dad was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer which had spread to his brain and bones. 7 weeks later, on the 23rd January 2020, he sadly passed away.

After David was diagnosed, I made him a promise to run 13.1 miles and raise as much money as I could for charity. So here is me keeping my promise and this is for David. I’m not just keeping my promise, I’m running both the London Landmarks Half Marathon on 29th March and the Great North Run on 13th September.

Update 13/09/2020;

I ran the Local Landmarks Half Marathon on 29th March 2020, 13.1 miles in a time of 01:59:59. And I now have the medal...πŸ…πŸ™ŒπŸ»

As the Great North Run was cancelled, I entered the GNR Solo, 1 run for every year of the GNR, 40 runs in the 78 days from 28th June to 13th September. I managed to complete 43 runs with a total mileage of 200.1 miles.

I ran the Great North Run Virtually on 13th September 2020, 13.1 miles in a time of 02:07:45. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Roll on running The London Landmarks Half Marathon and the Great North Run in 2021! 🀞🏻

I am using this page for donations for the Local Landmarks Half Marathon, The GNR Solo, The Virtual Great North Run, The London Landmarks Half Marathon 2021 and The Great North Run 2021.

Cancer is happening right now, it doesn’t discriminate. Please give whatever you can to this worthy cause.

Love May πŸ’•

The London Landmarks Half Marathon and the Great North Run have now both been cancelled, I am waiting to hear from Cancer Research regarding my places for these races.

In place of the GNR, I am entering the GNR Solo. 1 run for every year of the GNR, 40 runs in the 78 days from 28th June to 13th September. Why not train as I would have, then complete the half marathon on the day local to my parents house in the North East. I owe that to all the people who sponsored me. πŸ‘πŸ»
