Simon Windsor

"Thank you and HEART UK for the support throughout the fundraising process, the regular motivational and informative communication and of course the great work you are doing all year round to raise awareness. As a first time marathon runner I couldn't be more proud to run for such a wonderful charity.

Dean Stevens

"We both had a fantastic time running the London Marathon for HEART UK. It was an amazing experience to be able to run my 8th marathon alongside my son Jamie. As always the support we received from Charlotte and her team at HEART UK was brilliant!"

Rick Limb 

"Thank you for the opportunity to run again on Sunday. I loved the occasion and was so happy to get a personal best too!"

Helen Walden

"It was a real privilege to run the London Marathon 2019 in aid of HEART UK, a charity that's really important for my family. I had a great run, really enjoyed it, the support around the course was hugely inspiring, and meeting HEART UK's dedicated staff after the run was the icing on the cake."
