Richard Pitcairn-Knowles completes London Marathon for VMT aged 80

Congratulations to Richard Pitcairn Knowles, our octogenarian runner in the London Marathon. Despite lack of training due to an Achilles tendon problem, he “limped to the finish” – as he puts it – in 6.32 hours . Bravo.

He would like to thank all the VMT supporters who kindly contributed to over £5,650 in aid of us and two other charities. He set himself a very high target of £6,000 and he’s almost there. He may well still make it as his fundraising page will be open until 31 May.
