One of those runners taking part was Mark Lochrin from East Kilbride in Scotland. Mark was running on behalf of AICR and was hoping to raise some vital funds.

Mark is married to Marie and has 2 children, Cara and Sam. He works as a Team leader for Networkers MSB and is a devoted Celtic football fan! Mark is renowned for his quick wit, sense of humour and ability to regale others with his amusing take on life.

We would like to thank Mark for his fantastic effort on Sunday! If you would like to take part in a running event just like Mark did then take a look at the Running Events that are taking place near you.
