Posted on: April 25, 2017

On Sunday 23 April, four runners competed in the London marathon in aid of Langdon. The grueling 26.2 miles was completed by Carinne Jay, Liam Stein, Jonathan Field and Laurence Broch.

Carinne Jay was the first of the them to finish the marathon in the amazing time of 3:31:02. She said, “This is my 10th marathon, and I am so proud to represent Langdon, my cousin is a Langdon member and he is the happiest he has ever been which shines through the whole family!”

 

Next to finish was Liam Stein; he finished the marathon in 5:10:46 . He told us, “It was really tough but also really rewarding, coming across the finish line to meet Langdon members at the end cheering me on truly made it all worth while, what an amazing day!”

Laurence Broch, whose son William is a Langdon member, finished the marathon in 6:12:21. Laurence ran the marathon 30 years ago and decided to take on the challenge again in aid of Langdon.  He told us, “running the marathon again after all this time was so rewarding, the crowd cheering me on the whole way round and being able to raise money for Langdon which has been a lifeline for my family was truly fantastic! “

And finally, Jonathan Field who’s niece Natasha is a Langdon member in Manchester, completed the marathon in 6:21:20. Inspired by his daughter and nephew who ran the marathon for Langdon last year, he told us “I am feeling very sore but also very happy to have completed it. I am so proud that I have managed to raise much needed funds for a wonderful charity that has provided such crucial care for my niece Natasha. A wonderful experience never to be repeated!”
