James Balson – 15th October 2017 – Amsterdam Half Marathon

James ran his first half marathon to support his brother:

“Up until last year I had never even heard of A1AD, I am sure that not many of you have. Keeping things short, its something that has hit too close to home for me to ignore that it exists. So, if I can do anything to help raise awareness, at the same time some much needed cash, then I am more than willing to push myself as far as I can, to help others who cannot push so hard.

In 5 weeks I will be running the Amsterdam Half Marathon, its my first half marathon, and my first charity run, of many more to come.

Help support others less fortunate, by supporting me run 21km (13 miles).”

James wasn’t be alone as our very own Cori will also be there running in the race. It is hoped that they can meet up at the beginning before the race starts.

James raised £450.46 for our charity which is a great amount.

Below are some photos of the race.
