Notching up number six
For Paul Brasington of Kennington it will be his second marathon in a fortnight – having successfully completed the Brighton Marathon on Sunday, April 9.
The 39-year-old is running both marathons for The Friends of the William Harvey Hospital.
Mr Brasington said: “I have been a keen runner for the last 10 years or so and the Brighton and London Marathons will be my fifth and sixth respectively. “London may be glorified sightseeing as I expect to still be aching from Brighton!
“Running for me became a great way to keep fit when I became too old and slow to play football any more.
“There is a very good social side within the running ‘community’ and for an individual sport everyone is very supportive and encouraging of each other.”
Mr Brasington works for Morningstar, an investment management firm.
