It was a very hot day in Brighton and a few us running for the charity met at the beginning of the race for a quick photo. We  were all nervous but looking forward to heading out for the marathon as it was to be run on through beautiful scenery.
However, none of us had planned for the very warm weather on the day! As everyone had been training in the cold winter (and spring) of 2012/2013 many of us suffered in the sun by the sea. Although all the charity supports on the day mentioned how nice it was to be in Brighton with the sun shinning a few of us running on the day disagreed!

Everyone who took  part finished the race where a special mention goes to Brian and Becky who were taking part in their first marathon and you can still make donations to some of the fundraising pages by clicking on the JustGiving links.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the marathon a selection of photos can be found below.

Daniel is the father of a little girl called Amelie who was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in March 2011 when she was 15 months old. After slowly coming to terms with what the future held, Daniel, his wife Patricia and their friends started THE CATS FOUNDATION to raise awareness of the disease and to provide fund raising opportunities so that a potential treatment can be found.
