Record Run in Rome

Record Run in Rome

In glorious hot sunshine Bev Hanson from Cambourne and John Lewellyn and Mark Payne from Poole, all enjoyed their runs through the Eternal City.

John completed the marathon in a charity record of 3:13:24 (previous fastest time was by Scott Parfitt in 2012 3.16.17) and on finishing said, “I did want to be the fastest Rome marathon runner for your wonderful charity and I very happy I managed it.” Many congratulations to John!
For Bev though, the challenge was not over; she went on to complete the London Marathon just two weeks later also in aid of the Society- what an amazing achievement!

Thank you to Bev, John and Mark for their efforts – together they have raised over £1500 for the vulnerable children in our midst and will make a difference to a number of family lives.
