Fatima Truscott London Marathon 2020

Why I’m running the London Marathon 2020

I mean, who even am I? With three half marathons under my belt my next running challenge is now the epic London Marathon!


I must be bat-shit-bonkers, innit? But it’s all true, folks. I haven’t just thrown you a click-bait title link here. Believe me, it is all so very, very, very REAL.

I found out that I had a place a few weeks ago.

I had entered the ballot (for the first time) but that wasn’t successful (is it ever?) however a good friend of mine Sara, kindly pointed me in the direction of a local Surrey non-profit for vulnerable children and young adults who had charity spaces going.

Long story short, I got a place!

And I have just set up my Just Giving page for the formidable charity, Eikon.

Please click their link to read all about the incredible things they do for kids that are on the brink of crisis.

I couldn’t be more proud to run for not only a charity that looks after the mental health and welfare of the most vulnerable in our county but also, as a parent, it breaks me to think that there are children close-by that just aren’t getting that support, care and love that we shower on our own two kids.


I’ll be blogging my progress on here and over on my Instagram.

Expect lots of running wank from now until April 2020!

Plus I’ll be volunteering for Eikon too, so will update you on that also.

The link is here to donate. Please give what you can.

I honestly appreciate your support and any donation you can give.

Thank you so, so much.
