Father Steven's Marathon

Father Steven was unable to run in the London Marathon on 3rd October 2021 as planned because his son had contracted COVID a few days before the event.

He pledged to run a Marathon as soon as it was safe and responsible to do so.
It just wouldn't be through the streets of London with 40,000 other people, and thousands of others cheering on, or result in a shiny medal for finishing.

On Saturday 9th October he kept that promise.

He writes:

"Christian's last day of isolation was yesterday and thank goodness he has now made a full recovery after being really poorly with Covid.
The need to care for him throughout his quarantine meant that I sadly could not take my place running as part of the Hospice UK team in the London Marathon last Sunday.
This was disappointing, but I was determined to complete the marathon anyway as soon as possible in recognition and gratitude for all the incredibly generous donations people have made to Hospice UK through my Just Giving page.
I completed the marathon this morning in just under 4 hours which was my goal.
Thank you so much for all the support,
it means a lot."

Father Steven didn't get a medal for the London Marathon,
but he was presented with this in the church.
