Trevor’s Fundraising For London Marathon 2017, in aid of IOWAC
My name is Trevor McAlister, I have been running for just over 3.5 years, having not done any running since PE at high school. I have also been a member of Ryde Harriers running club for 2.5 years.
I was lucky enough to get a place in the London Marathon 2017 through my club, although there was no requirement for me to do any fundraising, I felt I would like to give something back to running on the Isle of Wight.
For my 2017 London Marathon I will be fundraising for the Isle of Wight Athletics Club. The club mainly caters for junior members of school age, it provides opportunities to compete in track and field events, and is based at the only all-weather track on the Island.
When attending Hampshire cross country league fixtures to represent my club Ryde Harriers, it is always very motivational to see all the runner from the Isle of Wight Athletics Club doing so well in their races and representing the Island.
The day-to-day running of the Isle of Wight Athletics Club and travel to mainland fixtures is funded by the junior’s membership fees and charitable donations. Funds raised by my 2017 London Marathon will go towards the purchase new equipment and enable the members to continue to compete in mainland fixtures.
Thank you for supporting the Isle of Wight Athletics Club.
