Marc ran the London Marathon for #TeamWeald:

“Despite the rain the crowds along the whole route were incredible, and seeing the hospice in the Weald flag and supporters gave me such a massive boost each time I saw them. It was an emotional experience every time I suddenly turned round random corners and there was cacophony of noise, and there was nothing better than hearing random people shout your name when it started to get tough. Marathons are hard and I can’t thank those who donated enough for such an amazing cause, which helped give me the motivation to push through and know that the pain I had was temporary compared to those who aren’t so lucky.”
