Russell Finn – London Marathon

Russell Finn is running the London Marathon on behalf of Open Sight, in appreciation for all the help given to assist his wife who has visual impairment.

Russel says: ” I got a place in London by running Brighton marathon 2016 in 3:09:57 – fast enough to get a “Good for Age” place once you’re old (41-50). But I got an injury training in 2017 so couldn’t run it. My 2018 goals are: 1) don’t get injured, 2) run a personal best, 3) run faster than 3:05 (the Good for Age time for youngsters) Training is going well so far. I started in anger Jan 1 with 30km including two 5k parkruns. 532km (330 miles) run in the first 6 weeks this year. And I’ve lost about 3kg of Christmas weight 🙂

Russel aims to raise £500 in aid of Open Sight.
