31 May City Giving Day participants share volunteer stories for National Volunteers' Week
23-Mile Club to run the TCS London Marathon supporting The Lord Mayor's Appeal
Meet the 23-Mile Running Club.
First established to prepare a team of City of London Corporation (CoLC) marathon runners for the first London Marathon on 29 March 1981, they have competed in every London Marathon since.
This Sunday 23 April, a team will don their running shoes and set out to concur the TCS London Marathon's 26.2 miles while running club friends and familes will man a marathon water station. For many years this was outside the Dowgate Fire station in the Square Mile, along the route past mile marker 23 - hence the name '23-Mile Running Club'.
We'd like to wish all of the 23-Mile Club runners the best of luck and to say a big thanks to all those supporters who have raised £3,850 so far for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
