Marathon runners raise funds for the AHT
More than 30,000 people took part in this year’s Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 17 April, each taking on the gruelling 26.2 miles.
Those running to raise funds for the AHT were Victoria Boseley, Tim Gredley, Jamie Holmes, Hannah Stickels and Louise and Terry Kinvig.
Tim has previously competed as a professional showjumper and is based in Stetchworth near Newmarket. He completed the marathon in 03.49:10
Tim said: “Growing up and living in an equine environment, the AHT is a charity that affects me personally. The charity improves the lives of thousands of animals and I hope the money I raise will help with this.”
Louise and Terry Kinvig, two veterinary surgeons from Yorkshire, completed the marathon in 04.22:15 and 04.26:22 respectively. They decided to run the marathon in aid of the AHT to help support its scientific research and also in thanks for support Terry has received from vets working at the charity.
Hannah Stickels, who lives in London, has a personal connection with the AHT. In her first time running a marathon, she finished in 05.54:48
Jamie Holmes and Victoria Boseley from Gloucester are both huge animal lovers and chose to run for the AHT because of this. Victoria and Jamie completed the marathon in 05.28:33.
In total the runners are hoping to raise £9,000 for the AHT’s vital work.
