Support the Ronners who are Running for Ron at the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2015!
A huge thank you to all who are Running for Ron at the Virgin Money London Marathon on April 26.
They are working hard to fundraise as much as they possibly can for the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund, but they need your support!
The RPMF supports many of Britain’s most talented athletes aged 15-23 with financial grants totalling tens of thousands of pounds every year. A key source of fundraising is via money raised by ‘Ronners’ and in 2014 in excess of £20,000 was raised for the Fund through people running the London Marathon.
Here we meet some of 2015’s Virgin Money London Marathon ‘Ronners’:

Penny has been keeping fit by skiing in Colorado, but when challenged she promised that she was back country skiing which is a serious workout, not just downhill!
She has also done some fat tyre biking which is cycling on snow and seriously aerobic, plus a snow shoe hike so her week off running is not wasted! We believe you Penny!
