Running for Good runner stories

Training doesn’t need to be a lonely affair. You’ve got a virtual cheer-squad with you at all times in the form of your fellow runners.

It’s true. Runners are basically one big family. Once you sign-up to run, you’re automatically “one of us”, and families look out for each other.

Gary

Gary knows a thing or two about marathon running. When he crossed the finish line of last year's London marathon, he was also crossing the finish line of his 100 marathons in 100 days challenge. Yep... he warmed up for the main event by running a marathon every. single. day. for the 99 days leading up to it.

Gary did it for his dad who was diagnosed with cancer. He’s also raised over £100,000 for Macmillan.

Haroon

Running the London marathon in 2012 was supposed to be a one off for Haroon. But after his father was killed in a car accident, Haroon dedicated himself to doing something positive in his memory.

This year, he ran four marathons in three weeks. His aim? To raise £20,000 to build a Solar Water & Power Centre in Senegal. Haroon smashed his target, raising £26,000 and the centre has been constructed. Haroon has *literally* changed hundreds of lives by running marathons.
