#TeamCalvert conquers London Marathon

April 24, 2018

Congratulations to everyone that participated in this year's Virgin Money London Marathon. It was a scorching hot day in London, causing lots of runners to suffer from heat exhaustion and dehydration.

However, Mo Farah didn't let the heat get the best of him and he was able to beat the current British record. Mo completing the run in 2 hours, 6 minutes and 21 seconds.

#TeamCalvert did amazing on the day with ten runners completing the course. Our fastest runner was Paul Schofield who completed the course in 3 hours, 12 mins and 25 seconds. Peter Straker, a trustee for Calvert Trust Kielder completed the course in his wheelchair in 7 hours, 7 minutes and 17 seconds.

So far the #TeamCalvert runners have raised over £14,000 with money still expected to come in.
