Marathon Joy Among IRLA Runners


Huge congratulations go to three IRLA members, who have completed this year’s London Marathon, and raised thousands of pounds in the process.

Richard Burrows, our YPG Chairman, completed the challenging race in 2.57.07.

He has already raised over £2,000 for the National Autistic Society.

Also competing was Chris Woolener, who completed the race in 3.01.08.

Meanwhile, Neil Sutton, of QBE, was raising funds for Save the Children, and completed the marathon in 4.31.51.

Richard said after the event that he was ‘delighted’ with his result, and is now gearing up to take part in the Chicago Marathon later this year.

He commented: “I am so pleased (and relieved!) to have completed this year’s London Marathon, especially in the time which I have done, which was even better than I could have hoped for.

“I am also proud to have raised such a great amount for The National Autistic Society.”
