Twenty Fenland Running Club Marathon Runners

With Pasquale Ruggiero having kick started Fenland Running Club’s 2010 marathon runs by competing in the Rome Marathon last month, the marathon season really gets underway a week on Sunday (25APR10) with nine club members taking to the streets of London in the 1st Virgin London Marathon.  The two places awarded to the club by the organisers have gone to Trudy Sayell and Mel Murdoch, who were the lucky winners of the internal Club ballot and are running their first ever marathon.  Mel is also running to raise money for her chosen charities of Asthma UK and Age Concern Cambs.  Also running their first marathons are Michelle Gilbert and Lisa Jermey, Michelle having been lucky to have won an organisers ballot place whilst Lisa is running in a charity place for Bernardos.  Also running in a charity place is Lou Busby who is taking part her second London Marathon in aid of the charity Get Kids Going, a charity to keep disabled children active.  
Other lucky winners of the organiser’s ballot places are Jane Holmes, Dave Harris and Ady Martin whilst Keith White has a ‘Good for Age’ place and will be using this marathon as a training run in his preparation for the Comrades ultra distance 56 mile race in Durban South Africa on Sunday 30th May.  Jane Holmes will be raising money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
Later in the year on Sunday 9th May, Dave Hood, Jane Greenwood, Cheryl Chapman, Paul Weigand and Sean Connolly will be running the Halstead and Essex Marathon.  Still later, on 23rd May, Cara Russell, Sarah Gauvin, Nicole Coughlin and Andre Pittock will be tackling the Edinburgh Marathon which will be Cara’s first ever marathon, Nicole’s and Andre’s third and Sarah’s eighth.  Cara will be raising money for her chosen charity of the Vanessa Grant Trust which supports education projects offering life-changing opportunities in and around Rongai in rural Kenya. Projects include a school for children with special needs, developing the local primary school, and a new secondary school giving girls from all backgrounds the chance of a full education.  Both Sarah and Nicole will be raising money for Macmillan Care Support and both have set their goals on achieving sub 3hrs 45 to entitle them to get a ‘Good for Age’ place in next year’s London Marathon.  
In October, Stuart Sewell will be travelling to Ireland to compete in the Dublin Marathon, just how many FRC members join him is at the moment unknown!
