Today, our good friend Alex Clark was one of over 36,000 runners to complete the 35th London marathon. Despite picking up a significant injury in the lead up to the race, which nearly prevented Alex from taking part, the IT Director from Nottingham came home in a very respectable time of 4 hours and 3 minutes, 9 minutes off his personal best at the Manchester Marathon.

4000 calories lighter, Alex raised £800, with all funds going to our partner Delete Blood Cancer, to help towards covering the cost of the swab kits, which are used as part of the donor registration process. Everyone from Race Against Blood Cancer thanks Alex for his efforts and wishes him a speedy recovery.
