Coronavirus: Paul’s London Marathon effort will have to wait

Paul Hart OMM Manager

Despite the news that the London Marathon is being postponed to October due to the coronavirus outbreak, many entrants are feeling positive.

Our Practice Manager and first time London Marathon runner, Paul Lockhart, included.

“I am disappointed, particularly after training since October last year, but there’s a big silver lining here” says Paul.

“The postponement will give me extra time to fundraise for Headway – the brain injury association. The delay will also give my body time to recover from the numerous injuries I have suffered along the way.

Everyone has been so generous so far, donating to my fundraising page and for that I am extremely grateful. So, thank you to everyone who has done this. I’m still training, so please continue to support me in my mission to raise funds for Headway.”

Paul has so far raised an impressive £2,265. Having already reached his original target of £2,000, the father of two has recently set a new bar of £5,000.

The event, which was due to take place on Sunday 26 April, will now take place on Sunday 4 October 2020. It is the first time the race has been postponed since its launch in 1981.

The official statement from the organisers can be found here.
