Two down, one to go, in Jamie’s @CRY_UK odyssey

When he stands at the start line for Sunday’s London Marathon, Jamie Gavin will be aiming to complete a fantastic triple in aid of Tom and Claire’s Fund and CRY.

Jamie, a BBC Sport journalist, has already run the Liverpool Marathon on June 14 last year and the Chester Marathon on October 4. Now he’s on the verge of realising his ambition of three marathons in under a year for CRY.

He said: “With all the selfless time and effort Claire put in for so many young journalists, it will be really special to run in aid of Tom and Claire’s fund and CRY again – this time in London, where we spent the first weeks of our training at the BBC with Claire.”

“All the support and donations received throughout the three marathons has made it more than worthwhile, and it would be amazing to break through the £1000 raised barrier this week – we’re nearly there!

“It feels like I’ve been in training for ever, so I’m really looking forward to finally getting out there and running the race in front of the crowds.”
