On their marks for the London Marathon (please sponsor them!!)

londonmarathonIT IS a long way. Every year, since 1981, it comes round and ever year we stand in awe at the people determined to put themselves through the agony of 26 miles and 385 yards.

There are a number of Thurrock folk running the marathon. They all have a chip in their race number and so we can follow their 5K split times on the Virgin marathon website.

Here is a list of runners so far. Click onto the link and you will see full details of their Justgiving pages and their stories.

Among the runners are:

From the Thurrock Local Enterprise Agency Graeme Loveland

From Pixelwork Matt Harris

From Essex Police Leigh Norris

From Stanford-le-Hope, Terry Fisher

Thurrock teacher, Emma Hopper

From Corringham, Anne Pettican

From Chafford Hundred, Phil Cunningham

Olympic Gold Medallist, Danny Crates

Former East Thurrock United footballer Reiss Gilbey

We will add more runners as we go along.
