AMONG the thousands of people who ran the #VirtualLondonMarathon – aka #The40thRace – on October 4th was Jon Shaw, Head of King’s Ely Senior, and Mark Hart, our Chief Operating Officer.

It is the 12th time Mark has run the London Marathon and he took on his 26.2 mile route this year with his son, Adam, for whom the marathon was his 4th.

Jon completed his route around Ely and the Fens, including Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, in 3 hours and 57 minutes.

All three took on the Virtual Marathon in aid of Asthma UK and they have so far raised more than £5,000 between them. To donate or to find out why they chose Asthma UK, visit:
