London Marathon 2021

Introducing our Springboard London Marathon 2021 Runner Charlotte

I’m an amateur runner by morning and a slightly less amateur (some may disagree…) Actuary by day! I started running during the first lockdown in 2020, and initially, running was just an excuse to go outside for some fresh air every day. It didn’t take long for me to get hooked to the endorphins and feeling of achieving something every day.

My best friend’s Mum, Sarah, has volunteered at Springboard for many years, so I was very excited to hear about the opportunity to support Springboard by running the London Marathon.

I’ve been training for my first marathon, the Richmond Marathon, on 16 May, since November 2020. This will be my first ever race (of any distance!) and this should be good preparation for London. I hope this will bring me closer to my goal of running a sub 4 hour marathon at London.

To add some extra spice to my challenge, I am aiming to run race PBs across the 5k, 10k and Half Marathon distances in the build up to the London Marathon.

Wish me luck, and thank you for supporting my marathon journey. Both Springboard & I really appreciate it!

You can sponsor me using the following link
