London 10k – 2015 report

2015 marked the tenth year that the Myotubular Trust had a team of runners taking part in this fantastic event.

As ever, we had an amazing team - they came from as far afield as Norway to take part. We were also joined by runners from the Phillipines, Australia and Canada, and several of our UK runners had very early starts to be in St James’ Park for our annual team photo.

The weather was perfect for the runners, which was a huge relief for all, given that the previous week had seen London temperatures of 98°C.

One of our runners, Sarah, was celebrating her birthday and we were so touched to hear that she had requested donations in lieu of gifts. Thank you, Sarah!

It was, as ever, heart-warming to see some of our old friends at the run, as well as having the opportunity to meet some new supporters too.

It is always a relief to see everybody returning to our meeting point in the park post-run and wearing their medals with pride.

Thank you so much to all who made it such a special day – runners, supporters and chauffeurs alike!

 London 10K - 2013 Report
     
 

Wow whee – the hottest weekend of the year but still our 2013 running team, and their supporters, turned out in force, making it a very special day at the London 10k on Sunday 14th July.

We were mightily relieved to see our fantastic running team coming back to our meeting point in St James’s Park after the run – they certainly looked happy and quite rightly very proud to have completed the route in such challenging conditions. It was hot enough work being a supporter and we are in admiration of the team.

   

We had one runner with us yesterday who has now run each of the 8 years that the Myotubular Trust has taken part in this event – well done and thank you Andrea. We also had some ‘regulars’ with us again too and we take our hats off to you all – it genuinely wouldn’t be the same without you! We were also thrilled to meet several new runners who had never taken part in an event like this before – it was great to meet you all and to share your enthusiasm and we’re so glad that you enjoyed it.

We’d also like to thank the army of supporters who provided much needed encouragement along the route, not to mention some fantastic post run food. It was great to see so many of you and we were delighted that to meet our newest supporter, 3 week old baby Grace.

And we can’t forget our two photographers, Paraic and Jamie who you may well have noticed with their pink balloons attached to their backpacks! Thank you both – we’ll enjoy your handiwork for many years to come.

We always find it a very humbling and emotional experience to see everybody en masse in their Myotubular Trust t-shirts and also to know the lengths that many of our runners and supporters have gone to in order to join us. There were some very long journeys made over the weekend and some juggling acts too. We are so very grateful to each and every runner and supporter for making this such a memorable and successful event – we are so very grateful.

Thank you!
