Dave Thompson, Jean’s husband, is gearing up for a fund-raiser with a difference on Sunday, September 15 — the London Duathlon in London’s Richmond Park where many thousands of runners and cyclists are set to take part.
Dave, 68, says: “There are various levels and I’ll be doing the so-called Sprint – a 10-km run, a 22-km bike ride, rounded off by a 5-km run. See http://londonduathlon.com/about/route for more information about the race.
“I run and bike regularly but have never combined the two in this way so I’m really looking forward to it.”
Dave has done various half-marathons in recent years to help raise money for Aquinoe, the most recent being near home in Paddock Wood in April.
He says: “Richmond Park is a stunning venue and will be closed to traffic for the day so it should be a wonderful occasion. Any support would be hugely appreciated.”
