Boulting Technology’s Shining
Everyone has heard of the London Marathon, but did you know that there is a London Night Marathon?
Each year some 17,000 people take part in the Shine Night Walk, walking the 26.2 mile route to raise money for Cancer Research.
This year Boulting Technology’s Kara Doble walked the full marathon sponsored by friends and colleagues. “It was a fantastic night, clear and fresh with the route taking us past the major landmarks of London. Every corner held a wonderful view. Even the Strand had its entertainment; side stepping revellers whilst window shopping in the small hours! The event was very well organised and the route clearly marked with lots of stewards and pit stops.”
Kara started her walk at 9.40 pm, completing it some 10 hours and 6 minutes later. “I can honestly say I enjoyed the whole event from start to finish. Even the training has been a joy, walking some 25 miles a week around Staffordshire and Derbyshire throughout the summer. A big thank you to everyone who helped me to train and sponsored me. I exceeded my fundraising target and know that the £600 raised will help beat Cancer sooner”
Registration is open now for the Shine Walk 2016 !
