Both marathons are 13.1 miles long with Dave and Sarah raising money for charities; Help for Heroes and Leukaemia Research.

Sarah Merris, DVC Customer Service Advisor commented:

“We have chosen to support the Help for Heroes charity as my brother is currently serving in the Army and for Leukaemia Research as my Grandad was diagnosed with non-curable leukaemia two years ago. On both marathon days it will be a tough challenge but rewarding knowing that we are raising much needed funds for two great causes”.
