Richard Bebbington, the Mayor of Ashby De La Zouch, has completed his 9th marathon of a 12 marathon campaign. The latest marathon took place at Gloucester on Sunday 22nd January. The weather for January was very kind but breezy. Richard completed this in 3 hours 54 minutes, coming in 192nd out of 374 who completed the course. With a knee injury, Christmas pudding, a few extra drinks and the loss of his mother, training proved to be very hard. Therefore completed this race in less than 4 hours was a bonus.

It is now over 12 months since Richard started his training in earnest. Out 5 times a week Richard has now ran over 2,500 miles, with an extra 236 miles during the nine completed races. Many people have stated that the remaining marathons should be “a walk in the park”. Believe me they don’t get any easier and running 26 miles is hard, very hard!

The three remaining marathons are at Belvoir (a replacement for Cambridge), Ashby and London. Meanwhile Richard and his wife, Angela, are in the process of organising the 4th annual Ivanhoe Way Challenge. This is a 37 mile walk to be completed within 15 hours.
