London Calling for St Austell Running Club
Over twenty members of St Austell Running Club will be taking to the streets of London on Sunday for the 2019 London Marathon.
For some it will be their first marathon, for some their first London and for others it will be another fantastic experience at one of, if not, the greatest marathon in the world.
Leading from the front is likely to be Paul Maskell, who starts off the Championship start once again and he will be looking to continue his fine form over the marathon distance.
James Cutlan will also be expected to do well in his first attempt of London, while all other runners will relish the moment and will be proud of their achievements, having trained hard over the past few months.
Among those running on the day for local charity will be the club’s own Betty Stoggs, who has already raised over £20,000 for Children’s Hospice South West and is targeting £26,000 by the time of the marathon.
Cornwall Hospice Care will also be well represented with no less than eight runners running for them, Gennara Bray, Paddy Talen, Paul Johnson, Jodie Roycroft, Sue Floyd-Norris, Gary Jane and Viv and Shawn Ferris.
Sharon Webber and Ross Buscombe are running for Children with Cancer UK, Holly Payne for Rhino Ark, Kylie Johns for Diabetes UK, Jessie Retallick for Mind, Sam Ewart for the British Lung Foundation and Kath Wisner for the Chesnut Appeal.
A full list of St Austell Running Club members running are: Michael Woodman, Sharon Webber, Ross Buscombe, Paul Johnson, Jo Skyba, Lisa Gower, Gennara Bray, Holy Payne, Kylie Johns, Jessie Retallick, Sam Ewart, Georgina Speake, Tim Adams, James Cutlan, Paddy Talen, Sue Floyd-Norris, Gary Jane, Fred Thomas, Kath Wisner, Jodie-May Gauld, Jodie Roycroft, Viv Ferris, Shawn Ferris, Paul Maskell, Dan Nicholls, Jez Mancer, Shaun Grose, Andy Budge and Stacie Marks.
