The Scannappeal team would like to thank all seven runners supporting us in their first ever Virgin London Marathon.
Brothers Ben and Robbie Bilsland finished seconds apart in just over 4:02 hours. Darren Owen in 4:10hrs, Darren Hill 4:12 hrs, Alex Hayward in 4:29hrs, Manjit Moore in 5:15hrs and Neil Hillier in 5:43hrs. A special thanks also goes to Mark Gregory who ran the Brighton Marathon for us just two weeks earlier!
Darren Owen says ‘The standout moment for me was running over tower Bridge. It is such an iconic part of the marathon, and of London itself, it was both a surreal and amazing experience. Unforgettable.’ Alex says ‘The highlight for me was the feeling of crossing the finish line (obviously!), but I also really enjoyed running over Tower Bridge. The crowds were amazing and it felt fantastic to see my family along the way.’ And brothers Ben & Robbie told us ‘Crossing the finish line was one of the greatest feelings they have ever had!!
A HUGE WELL DONE from the whole Scannappeal team to all eight of our marathon runners who so far have raised a fantastic £14,000 between them for Scannappeal’s Laser Heart and Cancer Fighting Fund Appeals at Wycombe and Stoke Mandeville Hospitals.
