Allistair's Marathon Experience

To run the London Marathon was such a special experience. Me and my family all had such an amazing day. The support from everyone was so inspirational; The crowds, my family, social media and everyone at The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust was overwhelming. Sure it is a massive challenge to run a Marathon and there are plenty of challenges along the way, especially during some of the long lonely training runs! However all of the support was a massive help to get me to the finish line on the day. It is such an iconic event and I feel so privileged to have been a part of it and am still wearing my medal with pride. I would urge anyone who gets a similar opportunity to grab it with both hands and never give up. The feeling of accomplishment and achievement at the end is great. We all have photos and memories that will last a lifetime.

We are incredibly grateful and proud of our EPT London Marathon team, who after set backs and delays have all worked so hard training and raising incredible funds and awareness.  They have showed true grit and passion to achieve a lifetime achievement on the streets of London.  If you feel inspired by Allistair’s fundraising experience please do take a look at ways to get involved and email our fundraising co-ordinator who will be very happy to help you Jill@ectopic.org.uk.
