Alex Williamson London Marathon 2017

​On April 23rd 2017, long-time supporter and EMpowerUP athlete Alex Williamson, will be running the London Marathon raising funds for EMpower!

On his fundraising page Alex states, “I used to run marathons. The year was 2010: I was childless, worked 10 hours a week less than now and as my wife cheerfully points out “Honey, you were a lot fitter then”. A serious marathon preparation routine involves 5 serious runs a week; I’m told 5 serious flights a week isn’t a traditionally accepted substitute.

So why on earth have I agreed to run 42.2km (a full marathon) in London on Sunday April 23rd? Misplaced bravado, stupidity & a degree of temporary insanity are clearly part of the answer, but more importantly: there is a good cause to run for”.

Good luck Alex!
