14th April 2013 Brighton Marathon: Cat Channon, Terry Haynes, Graeme Struthers and Simon Urquhart are all in for another endurance test down by the sea, donate here.
So after the roaring fundraising and excruciating success of 2012’s GamesAid NCSOFT Brighton marathon team’s running madness. A few of the industry’s finest are back on the streets and doing it again. On April 15th a hardy team of four, (largely fair weather) runners will attempt the 26.2 mile seaside race around the South Coast’s most cosmopolitan town of Brighton. Graeme ‘steady up’ Struthers, Cat ‘astrophe’ Channon, Terry ‘tear about’ Haynes and Simon ‘speedy’ Urquhart will be representing on your behalf. As always all the money raised will go to the many small, British based, youth orientated charities that GamesAid, with your help is able to support. It’s no mean feat for a fitty, let alone some of those participating that are of a more ‘sedatory’ disposition. So please dig as deep as those out on the road are going to need to do and donate here
