Hi all. I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC at the end of October. This is a hugely patriotic marathon over there, with water stations manned by marines, starting at The Pentagon and passing all the major monuments in DC. I also expect to have Semper Fidelis non-stop for roughly 3 hours 45 minutes, and will be running in the bib of the Royal Navy in my memory of my decorated grandfather.

It seemed appropriate to raise a few quid for a suitable charity, and as such I have set up a Just Giving page in aid of Help for Heroes.

If anyone has a few pennies to throw their way, I would appreciate if you could share at the link below. Many thanks.

This deserves to be stickied for a few days, surely Mods? Fantastic cause. All the best pal.

Aww S**T, sorry BG. As soon as I drew attention to your fantastic cause, a jobsworth Mod moved it to this 'never read' forum. I agree that the thread should be moved here eventually but a couple of days on the main board wouldn't have hurt.
I feel bad now 'cause your message was on the main board for hours. Within 5 minutes of my reply it was moved here. FFS!!

Update - Completed the Marine Corps marathon in 3h42mins, raised a nice bit of cash for Help for Heroes, thanks everyone.

Passed some British squaddies after a few miles yomping their way around in full kit and rucksacks, Union Flag draped over the back Falklands-style.
