A huge thank you and congratulations from all at CRY to our amazing runners who took part in the 2022 TCS London Marathon!
Sunday 2nd October 2022 marked the second year that the marathon was to go ahead in October, as #TeamCRY got to complete the iconic 26.2 miles through London. We were delighted to have 57 runners take part on behalf of CRY, raising both vital funds and awareness.
CRY volunteers were based out on the route at miles 12 and 23 to spur our charity heroes on. The weather on the day was dry and a nice temperature to run in, despite the forecast of rain! Our runners were greeted by CRY staff and volunteers near the finish area, before being shepherded back to Section Z of the Meet and Greet where CRY were based to offer Massages, drinks and snacks.
As the runners gradually arrived at the Meet and Greet, they were welcomed back by CRY staff and volunteers with applause and the ringing of CRY cowbells! They were offered a CRY medal, photographed by CRY staff, and offered plenty of refreshments, followed by a massage from a therapist with the aim of easing some of the discomfort they might be experiencing, after their fantastic efforts.
This year was the first time CRY were based at the Meet and Greet, it was lovely to see how many runners, along with their families and friends, came to see us to share their experiences from the day. It was a pleasure for CRY staff to meet everyone in person and thank them for their incredible efforts and dedication to the charity. As always, it was a challenging and emotional day for everyone involved, particularly for those who were taking part or supporting runners in memory of a young person.
Thank you so much to the runners and supporters who were able to come and meet us. We missed those who were unable to attend. A huge thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers: Lynn and Tony Beadle (in memory of Matthew Beadle); Andy Clarke; Caroline Gard (in memory of Andrew Gard); Wendy and Phil Harrington (in memory of Barry Nivett); Barbara and Jim Holland (in memory of Philip Holland); Rebecca Hurst (in memory of Tony Cummings); Julie Lockton; Elaine McCulloch; Becky Meredith and team; Daisy Page; Peter Robinson; Suzanne Rowan (in memory of Robert Rowan); Mike Tointon and Leah Watts.
