This Sunday a team of intrepid athletes will be running the famous Royal Parks Half marathon to raise money for RESULTS. We have five competitors in total who will be taking on the challenging course which winds its way through central London’s famous Royal Parks.
All of our runners will be taking part in the event to raise much needed core funds for the work of RESULTS. With this support we can continue to undertake to do all the work we do in helping to improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
Our runners are:
Annie Homer. Triathlete Annie has recently completed an internship with RESULTS and has now returned to Warwick University to undertake her fourth year of a French and Sociology degree. She is a seasoned and speedy runner, regularly turning out for Warwick running club. Despite an injury to her knee ligaments Annie has sworn to take on the run and she hopes to do the half in 90 minutes. Click here to sponsor Annie.
Julie Richardson. Julie is a relative newcomer to the running game and has found the training for the Half fairly tough. Recently she has battled both illness and injury but is now raring to take on the Royal Parks after renewing her commitment and lacing up her running spikes! French speaking Julie had this to say about RESULTS ‘tres bon’ thanks Julie! Click here to sponsor Julie.
Tom Armer. Fitness fanatic Tom has been working hard to make sure he’s the first RESULTS runner over the line. Endless gym sessions, football and rugby leave him finely tuned to make a real splash this October. Tom, who hails from Morecambe, subscribes to an old Buddhist mantra which he just refers to as ‘TAH’. Fingers crossed we’ll learn the true meaning of that as this thoroughbred takes to the paddock on Sunday. Click here to sponsor Tom.
Felix Jakens. “Pure sportsman” is how this young runner was once described by a school coach, referring to his innate ability to pick up new sports with the flair of a natural. Those words have unfortunately proven subsequently to have been hollow, however, this runner remains undeterred! Putting in a respectable 1hr 45 minutes in this race in 2011, Felix will be looking to improve on that time and possibly take on the mighty Tom Armer. Click here to sponsor Felix.
Cameron ‘Cammi’ Howson. Kiwi Cammi has a happy go lucky attitude to training, sometimes not going for a run for a month but then busting 10 miles on the way home from a hard day in the city. His no nonsense attitude means he really doesn’t know how long the Half will take him but he did say this “I plan to run the Half like I plays my rugby: hard.” Inspirational stuff.
