A message to our runners

A message to our runners


Sat 25 April

A message for all our London Marathon, and other event runners, who have had their events postponed or cancelled this year.
A message from our supporter, Mary:

"Completing the London Marathon 2019 is one of my most memorable experiences ever, and it was such an honour to fundraise for Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity! You invest so much time and mental and physical energy into preparing to go the distance that I can only imagine how deeply disappointing it would be not taking part this year - albeit for very good reasons.
It is very sobering to see the place where 1000s of runners registered, the Excel Centre, now being used as an NHS Nightingale Hospital. What a radical change to our lives in the course of a year. However, it’s important to keep some essence of the marathon mentality going - to retain some fitness and keep training, setting new goals including moving to online classes if you can and strength training, for example, and ultimately - never giving up.
At some point in the future, our lives will change again and hopefully, the big events will return. In the meantime, we should do everything we can to stay fit and well and support the 2.6 challenge to ensure charities get the support they desperately need right now."

Mary is undertaking a 26 mile bike ride for YBTC as part of her 2.6 Challenge.

Good luck Mary! From all at YBTC x
