Hannah’s Marathon Makes a Difference for BTRC

We would like to a say a very big thank you and well done to loaner Hannah Tompkins, who ran the 2022 TCS London Marathon to raise funds for BTRC. Hannah completed the 26.2 mile course in 4 hours 36 minutes and 21 seconds! An amazing achievement for Hannah who is extremely busy working as a junior doctor and loaning BTRC Flo, how she found time for training we don’t know!

When choosing to run on behalf of BTRC Hannah said “I currently loan BTRC Fruit and Nut (Flo) from The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre (BTRC) and will be running the London Marathon on behalf of the BTRC. I’m 25 and working as a junior doctor in the East Midlands. I’ve been running long distances for over a year but this will be my first marathon. Having visited the Centre numerous occasions to try Flo, I can see the hard work and dedication the team have towards rehabilitating the horses. The rehoming process and vulnerable horses scheme shows how important it is to support the charity and how essential their work is to aid thoroughbreds leaving the racing industry. Wish me luck!”

Well, all the luck paid off and Hannah did a fantastic job. Hannah’s JustGiving page is still open if you wish to make a donation: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/BTRCLondonMarathon
