Wow that is impressive, I am always in awe of people running marathons, mainly because I couldn't run half a mile let alone 26!

I'll sponsor him 50p a mile but will round it up to the nearest 10 if he finishes :) I am going away for 2 weeks so won't be able to send the money till after then?

Thank you :D..I'll trust you to send it later!:lol:

Thanks for putting this on Jill! I meant to ring you last night about putting something on the forum but forgot! It seems to be coming very quickly now - still a bit apprehensive to be honest :shock: Anyway, wish me luck and get sponsoring! Think of the bunnies!

Surely some other people will sponsor this brave man!! I'm sure even small amounts will be appreciated

This has also been advertised elsewhere..and four other people have kindly sponsored him:D

Pm me and I will send a cheque. I ran the london marathon this year so know how he will be feeling!! good luck:wave:

Very brave! (although I admit that until last weekend I didn't even know Leicester had a marathon!:oops:)

I'll match Louise & Gus's offer - 50p per mile, and round it up if completed.

Good luck Rich!

Well, this looking more promising! I love the fact that everyone seems to be sponsoring me to get up on Sunday morning! :lol: My number and timing chip have arrived, so no going back now! Remember everyone - the more sponsorship we get the happier the bunnies will be! :D

Rich you have a few more sponsors from another forum too..and my mother and mother in law!!:D

A great big WELL DONE to Rich who completed the marathon this morning:D

He was impressive and came in under 4 and a half hours..fantastic..especially as this was his first full marathon.

It was particularly hard on the runners as they were running into a quite strong and cold wind for the last 3rd of race .

I was in awe of all the competitors as I couldn't even run 100 yards..they were amazing..and great to see so many running for charity

Will add a couple of pics soon

Thank you so much and will see you soon!:D

Great effort Rich!! Do I post the cheque to you Jill?

19-10-2008, 06:59 PM
Congratulations Rich!!!! Can you let me know how much i owe you Jill? Will get the cheque in the post next week x :D

19-10-2008, 10:05 PM
Sounds great!

Am I too late to sponsor?

19-10-2008, 10:56 PM
