Mat & Dom’s Robin Hood Marathon 2014

Mat-and-Dom-Robin-Hood-MarathonMat and Dom from Lewes Athletic Club are running the Robin Hood Marathon at Nottingham on 28th September. They’re both raising money for the Bhopal Medical Appeal, having previously ran for the BMA in the Brighton Marathon for the last 3 years.

Why Nottingham? Well, in February of this year, half way into training for his 5th consecutive Brighton Marathon, Mat was falsely diagnosed with Brugada Syndrome (Sudden Death Syndrome) and was told he could never run again. 2 months later he was given the all clear, but he had missed the Brighton Marathon. Knowing he was desperate to run a marathon this year, Dom said he would join him in an Autumn marathon. For Mat and Dom the Robin Hood Marathon looked like such a great race, so both signed up.
Everyone at the Bhopal Medical Appeal is hugely relieved for Mat and wishes the best of luck to him and Dom with their training. Hopefully we’ll see them back running in the Brighton Marathon some time soon.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
