Well done to Bob Gray who completed the London Marathon 2015 in 3hrs 49mins, which is not as quick as he wanted as he had cramp towards the end of the race, but was happy overall. The crowds all-round the course were fantastic creating a great atmosphere which really helped boost his running.
Bob raised a total of £6,027.47 plus gift aid of £1,400 giving a grand total of £7,4027.43, which is a fantastic result for Alzheimer Scotland. Bob would like to thank those who donated from within Ogilvie as well as all the external donations which made it much more worthwhile for him personally. Bob is now training for the Edinburgh Marathon (31st May) and Three Peaks Challenge (13th June).
Bob Gray, Ogilvie Construction, is running in the London Marathon which takes place on Sunday 26th April 2015.
