KET runs in the London Marathon October 2021

KET runs in the London Marathon October 2021

We are delighted that we have 3 runners from 2nd Signal Regiment who are running on behalf of KET in this year's London Marathon!

On Sunday 3 October, the Virgin Money London Marathon will return to its iconic central London course 889 days after it was last held in April 2019. On the same day, up to 50,000 people around the world will take on the 26.2 miles on the course of their choice in the virtual event.

The We Run Together campaign will celebrate this landmark day and the joy it will bring to many thousands of people after 18 months of uncertainty living through the pandemic.

It will be televised live on BBC TV and broadcast around the globe.

 

Our KET runners: 

 

WO2 (SSM) Chris Maguire (pictured above) is a current serving member of the British Army and has enjoyed a varied, and exciting career venturing across the continents.  Currently a Warrant Officer, he enjoys the opportunity to coach, develop and lead young soldiers whilst ensuring they are offered the full scope of the ‘Army Package’.

He readily enjoys participating in endurance events and twins this with raising money for charity.  He completed Endure 24 at Branham Park in July, in a team of 3 who completed 150 miles and raised over £3000 for OSCARS Paediatric charity. He also recently completed a 40 mile march carrying 16kg of equipment, over the hilly Northumberland National Park raising £450 for Save the Children.
