London Marathon runners raise over £10,000 for The Salvation Army

They have collectively covered over 208 miles, ran for over 33 hours and raised in excess of £10,000 for The Salvation Army.

All our runners in Sunday’s 2008 Flora London Marathon did brilliantly well, braving the heavy downpours and a brief route diversion, to run a fantastic race. All of them completed the 26.2 mile long course, with our fastest runner coming 421st in an exceptional 2 hours 46 minutes.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Mark, Antonia, Chris G, Chris B, Ian, Andrew, Stuart, Chris C and Jonny. The money they have raised will go towards a number of projects in this country and abroad. It will help to fund Salvation Army residential centres for homeless people, care homes for the elderly, family centres and facilities for people with drug and alcohol addictions, as well as projects run at over 750 local church and community centres.

Others may also have run the marathon to raise money for specific Salvation Army projects – and to all participants a big thank you for all your hard work in training and fundraising as well.
