Over £1,000 Raised at Virgin London Marathon

This year The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre secured a Silver Bond charity place in the Virgin London Marathon to aid their fund raising.

Tom Marks was the lucky representative who had the hard job of ‘Running for Retraining’ the whole 26.2 miles. Tom is a member of the Southdown Blood Hounds and runs as the quarry. His partner is a keen rider and he supports her in her equine interests. Tom said he is keen to run the marathon in support of a cause he is passionate about.

Tom managed to raise over £1,000 for BTRC and says ‘It was extremely hard but of course well worth it. I’d like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to run for you guys (BTRC)’. Tom’s fundraising page is still open should you wish to donate to say well done and in turn help give retired racehorses a long and enjoyable life – please click here.

The BTRC are now in the process of looking for a supporter to run on their behalf in the 2018 London Marathon. If you are interested, please email lauren@thetrc.co.uk
