Now anyone can do a marathon



Dear Stone & Eccleshall Gazette readers,

Heart disease is heartless. I know first-hand the devastating impact it can have on families across the UK because heart disease took my father from me when he was just 50.

Each year, over 11,600 lives are lost to heart and circulatory disease in the East Midlands alone. The need to find new ways to fight it is urgent. By taking part in the British Heart Foundation’s new MyMarathon challenge you can help accelerate this fight by funding the vital research that is so desperately needed to end this terrible suffering.

I’m calling on everyone in your region to take part and challenge themselves to run the 26.2miles this May.

You can run it at your own pace in your own time, whether that’s over 4 hours, 4 days or 4 weeks so now everyone can go the distance.

Sign up today at and help us save more lives.

Yours sincerely

Louise Hazel

GB Athlete
