Connor Buchan, RSE Project Engineer, and Calum Cruickshank, RSE Project Manager, took on the challenge of running the iconic 26.2-mile course from Greenwich to The Mall in the 43rd London Marathon.

Connor completed the London Marathon in an amazing 4:03:30 and was proud to be running in support of the MS Society, a charity very close to his heart. Connor wanted to run the marathon as a way of giving something back to the charity and to contribute towards the world-leading research into treatment for the disease. Connor smashed his original fundraising target, raising an amazing £4,160 for the charity.

Calum also ran an impressive time, completing the course in 3:53:19 in support of Blood Cancer UK . The charity funds vital research into various types of blood cancer, including Leukaemia, which has had a huge impact on his life. Calum’s marathon training had been a real challenge with new injuries appearing weekly, but his focus and determination to cross the finish line have all been worth it by managing to raise an amazing £4,600.

A huge well done Connor and Calum, we hope you are proud of your achievements!
