We would like to congratulate Bruce, our Senior Community Fundraiser for taking up the Challenge of the Virtual Marathon on Sunday 3rd October.
Confessing that he isn’t built for speed, Bruce decided to walk through all 5 Boroughs where SPEAR offer services.
Starting at five in the morning at Sutton Station, Bruce went through Morden in Merton, and then took the Wandle Walk to Earlsfield in Wandsworth, before joining SPEAR’s very own Walk of Hope in Richmond Park to visit the Boroughs of Kingston and Richmond.
It’s great that there is the option of doing the marathon virtually as it makes it accessible to those who wouldn’t normally consider taking part”
As well as people being able to take the marathon at their own pace, the Virtual Marathon enables people to do the distance in stages as long as the whole distance is covered in the day of the actual event.
Following the success of this year’s event, SPEAR is looking to offer this event again next year to our supporters. If this sounds like something you would be interested in attempting please let us know.
After doing the 5 Borough walk this year, Bruce is hoping to lead a group of supporters on the route next year.
Taking the Wandle Walk from Carshalton, you can do about 80% of the 5 Borough Walk by the river and through parkland.
I think it’s a really beautiful way to not only complete a marathon but discover all the SW London Boroughs where SPEAR offers vital services.
I’m really looking forward to taking the challenge in 2022 and hope some SPEAR supporters can join me”
