In spite of transport travails for some, our determined team of Stuart Low Trust stalwarts was undeterred in the sweltering 30° heat of Saturday’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 10k.
Leading the pack was Alexandros Papathanasiou, who went the distance in under 55 minutes, followed by teammates Julianna Adamkiewicz, Jennifer Bernal and Joannis Frangoullides.
Nooria Mangal, Jennifer’s colleague from the Perea Clinic, Islington, was unable to join the rest of the gang in the East End due to train disruption – but, determined not to let the side down, seized the initiative and ran two circuits of the weekly local 5k in Cassiobury Park, Watford.
“The run officials thought I was one of the last to finish – I was too hot to explain that I was on my second lap!” said Nooria, who looks forward to taking part in SLT’s next sponsored event, the Big Fun Run in Victoria Park on 28th October.
The great news is that the team is over 70% of the way to its fundraising target of £750 – please help them reach it by donating online here or by sending a cheque made payable to the Stuart Low Trust to us at Office 3, Claremont, 24-27 White Lion Street, Islington N1 9PD.
All funds raised will be used to continue our highly popular Saturday Project programme.
