From start to finish Barnardo's made running the London Marathon a really memorable and rewarding experience. I felt part of a family with the charity and other runners. The support leading up to the event, on race day then at the reception afterwards really showed how much the Barnardo’s team care for their runners. I was proud to wear that Barnardo's vest.
