The team have so far raised a combined total of more than £26,000 for the Hospice. That is enough to fund over 12 days of the entire Hospice at Home service, offering vital care to families in the comfort of their own home.

Competing for Team St Clare were:

  1. Adam Green (29, London) – 4hr 30mins
  2. Chris Shaw (37, Kedington) – 4hr 44mins
  3. Joe Stapleton (35, Thaxted) – 3hr 4mins
  4. Claire Bodiam (50, Ongar) – 5hr 37mins
  5. Mark Nicholas (St Albans) – 4hr 26mins
  6. Anthony Gafney (Braintree) 5hr 2mins
  7. Victoria Cousins (49, Harlow) – 4hr 55mins
  8. Jo Bird (63, Highams Park) – 5hr 51mins
  9. Karen Ritchie (57, Chingford) – 5hr 57mins
  10. Nick Barker (Epping) – 3hr 44mins
  11. Shakeel Khan (52, Ilford) – 5hr 4mins
  12. Sam Segameglio – 3hr 10mins

St Clare Hospice’s Relationship Fundraising Manager, Ellie Gale, said: “We went out and cheered on our runners from the side-lines, and not only did they have to tackle 26.2 miles, they did it all running through the elements and pouring rain! We couldn’t be more proud and grateful for the effort that each and every one of them has put it. £26,000 is an incredible amount to have raised, and will make such a difference to local families facing one of life’s hardest journeys, who need our support. Thank you, Team St Clare!”
