I am running the Vitality Big Half to raise funds for the Cutty Sark in its 150th year.
I love Greenwich! My home now for 15 years. I’ve spent much of that time in the Royal museums and my my two young children love spending time in them but mostly on the deck of the Cutty Sark!
I'm running the London Marathon for the Cutty Sark - one of the iconic sights on the marathon route.
Cutty Sark is a national and maritime icon and needs the funding to keep it in ship shape.
I am running the Vitality Big Half to raise funds for Cutty Sark in its 150th year. This national icon is a huge part of the Greenwich community and its rich maritime heritage. Like many people, she's seen a lot, been through a lot and survived - so lets keep her going to inspire future generations.
Given the age of the ship it is in constant need of care. I am running the Vitality Big Half to raise money for the ship; to ensure that this piece of British history is not lost to the ravages of time.
Now, I'm no athlete, and haven't run a lengthy distance in...decades
The money we raise will go towards a sustainable future for the Cutty Sark at Royal Museums Greenwich, including the ongoing preservation of this historic vessel.
