Our six Pink Lady® apple runners have all been hand-picked from Beginners2Runners running group, to take on the mighty challenge of running the world-famous 26.2 mile Virgin Money London Marathon course, dressed in a Pink Lady® apple costume.

Simon Luck is taking on the epic challenge of running his first ever marathon dressed as a Pink Lady® apple. Freddie’s dad has been training hard since finding out he would get the opportunity to tick this world-famous race off his bucket list, “- I have never run a marathon before and had not really planned to this year. I have recently become a dad to Freddie and was not sure I would have the time to put in to train, but with the chance to run the famous London course, dressed as an apple, I could not turn down this once in a lifetime opportunity!”

Simon has been running with the club since September 2017, when he signed up to join the 0-5k group. He didn’t realise how unfit he was, but also how much running helped not only with his physical fitness but as a stress-buster as well, “a chance to get out, clear my head, listen to cheesy music and get fit too. Since starting I have not looked back, taking part in a few 10k races and a half marathon in Richmond in 2018.”

The whole Pink Lady® team are proud to be raising vital funds for the Padua Children’s Oncology Ward at William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, Kent. Money raised will support the refurbishment of the ward, contributing to creating a space for both the children and their family members, from all over the East Kent area, to relax, play and spend quality time together.
