Alex Pigott, who is a Virtual Mate on WeMindTheGap’s WeDiscover programme has signed up to run the Bewl Water Marathon in Kent with a group of friends this month. The marathon is a scenic, late spring run. Alex and his team will start from the Bewl Water Visitor Centre, following the Bewl round the reservoir route.
Alex originally planned to run the Geneva Marathon in May 2020, however those plans were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alex says, “It’s not the major event with crowds lining the streets that we’d hoped for but it’s far more appealing than a lonely virtual marathon.”
The team have decided to run the marathon to raise money for WeMindTheGap as well as three other charities that are close to their hearts: Helen & Douglas House, Refuge, and CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
