Peasmarsh family run London Marathon

THREE members of the same family from Peasmarsh will be in the London marathon this Sunday.

Martin and Cathy Burke, who have run several marathons, including London on five previous occasions, will be joined by their eldest daughter Siobhan who is tackling her first.

All three are on the Blue start so will run the first few miles together but Siobhan with her younger legs is aiming to run the course inside 4 and a half hours whilst Cathy and Martin will be some way behind.

Siobhan will be raising money for the Mouth Cancer foundation as her Grandad (Cathy’s Dad) died 18 months ago from the illness. Donations can be made at
