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.

Andrew Wooding-Jones, the Archdeacon of Rochester has been running with the club for two years and he has completed two marathons in the past, Thames Meander and Beachy Head both in 2018. His training has been going well and Andrew is looking forward to the challenge of running his third marathon in a Pink Lady® apple costume.

After taking part in our exclusive training session with Team GB athlete Jazmin Sawyers, videos of which can be seen here, he was given some great advice, “I’ve been told to enjoy it. The crowds will offer amazing encouragement!”

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.
