Smith Brothers powers up for London Marathon 2019
As you know, Smith Brothers is a family-run company, and two of its dynasty – Heather and Ryan Smith – will be running the London Marathon in 2019. Heather and Ryan will both be supporting two fantastic causes as they train for – and take on – the gruelling 42.195km (26.219 mi) course on Sunday 28 April 2019.
Heather Smith will be running for team ActionAid UK, an international charity working to change the lives of women and children from the poorest counties of the world. Click here to support Heather’s journey.
Ryan Smith will be running for team NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover. If you’re like to support Ryan’s charity, please click here.
Acceptance into the race itself is an achievement. Dubbed the world’s most popular marathon, over 400,000 people entered the ballot for next year’s event – breaking the world record for applicants. Only around 40,000 people have been randomly selected to enter the race, so the pressure is on.
Ryan and Heather will be keeping Smith Brothers HQ updated on how training for the big day is going, so stay tuned over the next six months to follow their progress. For now, please show your support by donating to both wonderful charities using the links above.
