On the 4th October 2020, Smiths Company Director, Sarah Fitzjohn and her friend, Jo, ran (and walked) the virtual marathon.
Sarah is a keen runner and has previously taken part in the half marathon, but she is always up for a new challenge!
The London marathon launched their virtual marathon, in which you could run and walk the 26.2 miles in 24 hours. Sarah completed the 26.2 miles in 4 hours 31 minutes, a fantastic achievement.
Sarah and Jo started their run at David Lloyd in Peterborough, and ran through Thorpe Wood, Longthorpe (passing Thorpe Hall Hospice), Werrington, the Rowing Lake and finished at Ferry Meadows.
So far, Sarah, and her friend Jo, have raised an amazing £845 on their Virgin Money Giving page. All money donations will go to Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, a local Charity in Peterborough. If you would like to make a donation, please click on the button below.
