Jodie Harvey, Apex's Insurance Coordinator, completes London Virtual Marathon
12 October 2020
A huge WELL DONE to Jodie Harvey, Apex's Insurance Coordinator, for completing the virtual London Marathon 2020!
After suffering with an injury, having no set course route or the usual supporters to cheer her on, Jodie still managed to successfully complete the London Marathon on Sunday 4th October 2020.
Jodie recounts the day as being a challenge but persevered through the harsh Autumnal weather conditions to complete the last few miles alongside her daughter, Megan, for some much-needed encouragement and support.
The London Marathon 2020 was scheduled to take place back in April but was unfortunately postponed due to the current COVID-19 restrictions. Nonetheless, participants were still able to complete the challenge and continue to raise money for their chosen charities via a virtual race. Runners had to map their own running route to the equivalent 26.2-mile distance of the typical London Marathon.
The event certainly wasn't what the London runners are used to, but a great day and fundraising event regardless.
