Radley and Regan
Radley Vickery-Biddulph and his neice Regan Briscoe are taking part in the iconic TCS London Marathon together in April in support of women, children and families.
Radley, aged 49, is a healthcare lawyer from Webridge. His niece Regan, aged 23, lives in Ashford, Kent.
The pair have become aware of PACT’s work through Radley’s niece and Regan’s cousin Lauren who works as an adoption social worker at the charity.
Radley said: “Regan and I are amazed at the fantastic work Lauren and her colleagues do. We feel privileged to be able to represent PACT at the London Marathon and support the work it does.”
Reagan added: “I think that PACT gives so much to our communities and the help that the team gives to people in vulnerable situations is so important.
Neither Radley nor Reagan have run a full marathon before. Reagan said:
“I’ve never done a marathon before but I did do a half marathon last year in Auckland, New Zealand. I’m doing my best to stick to my training plan but there have been ups and downs. Mostly going well though and I’m confident I’m going to make it to the finish line!”
Radley added: “I’ve not run a marathon before so I’m looking forward to the challenge! I took part in a couple of half marathons last year as well as my first triathlon so I am hoping to use my experience in those and my training to help me do well in the marathon. I have a training plan and get out for a run most days – although it’s tough sometimes especially in the cold and icy weather – and I also do a weights session once a week.”
When asked what they are most looking forward to, they said the atmosphere of support:
“I’m most looking forward to the community experience and seeing the large number of people coming out to support the marathon runners. There’s always such a great sense of spirit at these events,” said Reagan.
Radley and Reagan are part of of seven members of Team PACT who will be running the 26.2 miles around the streets of London on 23rd April.
They have a joint fundraising target of £4,000 and they are collecting donations at their page https://2023tcslondonmarathon.enthuse.com/pf/regan-and-radley
“PACT does amazing work but relies on the donations of others to keep the cause alive. We believe in what PACT is doing and the impact it has on so many people’s lives so we are asking people to donate what they can to help us achieve our target of £4,000,” said Radley.
“I would like to ask people to please consider donating, every little bit counts. PACT does such amazing work to support families and women through difficult circumstances,” said Reagan.
Radley added: “By running the London Marathon I am also remembering my mum. She ran the marathon many years ago. She has sadly passed away and this is a great way to respect her memory and follow in her footsteps.”
