Once again, this year my wife Rosemary Copsey will be running the London Marathon as the same as last year in 2020. She will run here in Kusadasi, with a few changes.
Just to give you a bit of her running history, she only started her running approximately 3 years ago as a hobby, and the more she ran the more she liked it.
During that time in England she ran a 10 kilometre park run at Bury St Edmonds, another in Norwich, a half-marathon in Brighton, then last year she achieved her ambition and ran the London Marathon here in Kusadasi as due to the current coronavirus restricts she could not run in London.
During her time living here in Kusadasi she fell in love with the street animals and decided to raise money to help feed them.
This year she is only going to concentrate on her training and preparation for the Marathon. Again, she is happy to run for various charities, but they will have to organize their own programmes in order to raise their money and donations. It is just too much for one person. Again, she will have the same team with her in Vinnie, Chris and Graham.
The marathon course will basically be the same as last year, finishing in Ladies Beach.
Referring to last years marathon, it was very encouraging with the support received and a big thank you goes to the support given by the Belediye.
Caring and feeding the street animals have always been a problem here in Kusadasi and any help given in the form of a donation would be greatly received with thanks from the charity’s supporting this event.
This years event will take place on the 3rd of October so we still have a long way to go. Any changes made to the event will be made on social media, so keep your eyes open.
