Calvin Tickner runs the London Marathon

Jun 30, 2017

Eurogroup International Movers’ GRMS Division Manager, Calvin Tickner ,joined thousands of other determined runners to take part in this year’s London Marathon on 28 March.  This was the first time Calvin had run a marathon, but it was something that he’d wanted to do for quite some time.   

“Over the years, watching marathons on the box and hearing stories of those who have taken part, it’s always had a certain appeal,” said Calvin. “It was this challenge that caused the marathon to be added to my ‘bucket list’.”  

Calvin admits that he started training for the event a little late, but despite having less than 10 weeks to prepare he managed to post a respectable time of 4 hours 39 minutes 57 seconds, raising over two thousand pounds for his chosen charities.   

“To date I’ve managed to raise £2,289.76 (£2,537.26 with GiftAid) for Macmillan Cancer Support and BLESMA, the limbless veterans’ charity, which I’m very proud of,” he said. “I’m still taking donations and my page will remain open for a few more weeks should anyone wish to donate to such worthy causes.”  

Asked if he would ever do it again, Calvin said: “We’ll see!”
