Marathon Man

November 27, 2014

Written by Fantastic Media

The London Marathon is taking place on 26th April 2015 and Fantastic Media’s Head of Creative will be taking on this epic 26 mile and 385 yards challenge.

Paul Whitcroft will join thousands of runners who are taking part in the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise money for their chosen charities. The Marathon is one of the great British sporting events which passes through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

Paul took the decision to get fit during Christmas time in 2013, first he stopped drinking alcohol and one month later he’d shed a stone. Next, Shaun ‘T’ and ‘Insanity’ helped him shed another stone, and he later went on to complete the Endurer Dash with Team Fantastic. Now onto the next challenge…

Paul is running the Marathon to help raise funds for NSPCC, a charity that helps thousands of children up and down the country. Paul commented: “It was a personal goal of mine to get fit through exercise and a healthier lifestyle, but the London Marathon will be my biggest challenge yet! I am not only running for a great charity, but also for my wife and children, so they can have a fit and healthy husband and dad.”

Paul is raising funds in the run up to the marathon, please dig deep and donate what you can to benefit children around the country! Donate here.
