Marathon Man Lee has his sights on London!

Lee Gorton, logistics manager for Aaron Logistics in Wrexham, has taken on the biggest challenge of his life and is on track with his current training programme. Lee will be running in the Virgin London Marathon 2016 on Sunday, April 24.

Lee said: “I have done various runs over the last few years ranging from 10k runs to a recent half marathon for a range of charities, behalf of, or in memory of, a number of special people – some still with us and some who have sadly passed – but this is the big one for me. It will take a huge effort but one that I'm not fazed by.”

Lee is raising money for the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital in Gobowen and is running in in memory of Charlie Davies, a local boy who Lee’s youngest son, Matthew, used to go to school with and who was one of his best friends. Charlie suffered from muscular dystrophy but always kept a smile on his face. Charlie was suddenly taken from his family, friends and the community in May 2015, just 15 years old. It touched Lee just how everyone came together to give Charlie one of the best ‘send offs’ he had ever witnessed. “This run is to remember Charlie and to recognise what a strong community we live in.” Lee added.

Lee’s training schedule is seeing him fitting in as much daily training as possible around running a busy logistics company and doing a big run once a week - usually on a Sunday.

On February 28, at the midway point of his training, he took part in a half marathon at Oulton Park and completed the distance in 2hr 21 mins and yesterday saw him run another 13 miles, as part of his training run, in a time of 2 hours 16mins!

That’s two half marathons in 7 days!!!

Lee’s current fundraising figure stands at just over £1,017, so he really needs your help to get him to his target of £3,000. Any amount you can afford to donate will be very well received.

We’ll keep you updated on how he is doing! #londonmarathon #golee
