For the last 12 weeks #TeamEG, comprising of Caroline Lyons, Ben van de Peer and Mathew Perrin, have been training for the London Marathon 2018. Come rain, hail or shine - and they literally experienced it all including snow - they were out training every other night in preparation for the 26.2 miles.
They chose to run for Diabetes UK, in support of all people living with this terribly serious condition in Britain. One of those includes our very own Ben Van de Peer, without the support of Diabetes UK, Ben would not have been able to participate in this race. Collectively they have raised over £4,000 and we could not be prouder of them.
This year saw the hottest marathon on record, with temperatures reaching over 23 degrees. Despite the heat, each one of them finished with excellent times. They must now have a taste for it, as this morning they signed themselves up to go into the ballot for next year.
