Yesterday, Tarquin White collected his number and competitors kit for the London Marathon this Sunday (28 April), along with the T-shirt of his chosen charity – Kairos Community Trust.
The weather forecast for the day is coolish (11-13ºC) and dry – good news for runners and supporters alike. So find a spot along the 26.2-mile route to watch the race, and when you spot number 55062, cheer him on!
“You’re up and running, Tarquin!” says director Mossie Lyons. “Thank you from all of us for dedicating your first marathon to supporting Kairos – and good luck.”
