All the best to our supporter David Mcelhenny from St Bernard’s church in Holbury, who will be running the Claredon Marathon in aid of CAFOD on 7 October!
The off road, picturesque and challenging event will take him from Salisbury to Winchester along the ancient Clarendon Way – with a few extra turns here and there to make up a full 26.2 miles. More than 90% is off road, with the trail following country tracks and paths many of which have not changed since being travelled by the ancient Kings and Queens of England.
We are thrilled that David has decided to take part in it to help CAFOD! He said: “I have not run a marathon for some years and with limited training and the toughness of this marathon I know it will be a big challenge for me, but the reason why I am happy to raise money for CAFOD is because I believe they do such valuable work – especially helping people in ways that are sustainable”.
We wish David all the best for his endeavour and we look forward to hear about how it went!
