QAC Staff Member to take on 2020 London Marathon

QAC Maintenance Team legend Stuart has been successful in securing a place in the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon. 

Stuart is a keen runner and has been involved in a variety of different running clubs over the years but he currently runs with Knowle & Dorridge, who he secured the marathon place through.

Though a relatively small club, they don’t back down from a challenge when it comes to competing against bigger clubs, which is one of the things Stuart loved about running with them.

After joining K&D and watching his team mates compete in different marathons, Stuart decided 2020 was his year to shine and put his name forward for London.

This time around he has got a coach who will be putting him through some heavy training sessions and to help him achieve his goal of completing the marathon in under 3 hours. This goal came about due to not only beating his personal best of 3 hrs 8 mins, but also to help encourage people to be more active and live a healthier lifestyle. 

Stuart hasn’t run a marathon in a while and is excited to take on the challenge and represent his club and raise money for QAC in the process, deciding to set himself a target of raising £1000. 

We will be following his journey on our website and social media over the next few months as he prepares, trains for and finally competes in the race in April.

If you would like to support Stuart and sponsor him, you can do so here. Whether it is as little as 1p or as much as £100, it will all go towards helping our students and enhancing their experience.
