A marathon effort

On Sunday 26 April, 13 dedicated runners took on the challenge of a lifetime – the London Marathon.

Despite the heat and the crowds, everyone completed the marathon in fantastic times. And importantly, they raised over £20,000 for Concern’s education work in Mozambique.

Runners’ delight

Thank you so much to all our runners for a truly fantastic marathon effort! What did it feel like to complete the marathon? Concern’s Tony Wright is, in his own words, “a running obsessive.” He wrote about the marathon experience on his own personal blog; read it here.
