Bark­ing mad to run

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A PER­SONAL trainer ran the Lon­don marathon and raised funds for a dog so­ci­ety.

Keith Tucker who works in La­timer Park, La­timer did the marathon in four hours and 54 min­utes to raise money for Chilterns Dog Res­cue So­ci­ety.

Mr Tucker said: "I loved it, it was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, there was so much sup­port there."

The 36-year-old added: "Due to a new baby, I had only done six train­ing runs, I had trained my­self men­tally though.

"The more I dis­cov­ered about the so­ci­ety and the work they do, the more I wanted to raise money for them. They work with the po­lice to make sure our streets are safe from danger­ous dogs, they work with dis­abled dogs, it be­came a no­brainer that I should run for them."

So far, Mr Tucker has raised £511 for the char­ity.
