Leigh Academies Trust is delighted to congratulate four members of staff who finished the 26.2 mile London Marathon on 28 April 2019.
Marc Powell, PE teacher from Longfield Academy completed the run in an amazing 3 hours 44 mins.
Dartford Primary Academy’s Harriet Carter completed the course in 6 hours 40 minutes. Children at the academy held a non uniform day the week prior raising £422 for Sue Ryder.
Mascalls teacher, James Burton, ran the London Marathon with his father and sister. James finished in 4 hours 33 minutes. James’ godson was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was just 4 years old. Running the Brighton and London marathons, James and his family raised a fantastic £13,000.
Janet Tidmus from Milestone Academy had always wanted to run the London Marathon, ever since she watched the very first one in Greenwich 38 years ago. After applying for 11 consecutive years for a ballot place, Janet was offered a charity place by Phabkids and she started training right away. Janet completed the marathon in just under 6 hours and made over £2500 for the charity.
We are extremely proud of all our runners following their outstanding achievements for such worthy charities. You are all inspirational!
