The Royal Parks Foundation Ultra Marathon covered 50 kilometres, beginning in the heart of London and heading
through the city, past landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and the Houses of
Parliament before heading out along the Thames towpath and ending in Bushy Park
in south West London.
An ultra marathon is defined as a run
extending beyond the standard marathon distance of 42 kilometres.
"I want to thank everyone who supported me. It was a wonderful
experience and I received extraordinary help, from the donors, but especially
from Martyn Robson and Maria Panova on the day.
"Without all the support I would
not have found the strength to get past the finish line. I am so happy to have
been able to contribute in some little way to the good work that Thames Reach is
doing. With the right amount of commitment and support I now know
anything is possible."
