Raising awareness and crucial funds for MS-UK was Managing Director, Duncan Lindsay’s goal when running the London Marathon. The event took place on Sunday 26th April which saw thousands of applicants race in aid of many UK charities. MS-UK supports anyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis, a cause which has impacted lives closest to Duncan. The charity supports sufferers and families affected by the condition, through trained Advisors.  In our last interview with Duncan, we focused on the lead up to the event and the challenge of training. We interviewed Duncan after the Marathon to discuss his personal highlights and how much was raised in total. Did you feel prepared before starting the race?I was very nervous on the Saturday as this was my first Marathon. I couldn’t get my head around tapering which involves reducing your running up to the event.  In all honesty though, with work and family, I’m not sure if I could have done much more training.  What was your highlight of the Marathon? Everything! It was amazing, raising the money, the crowds and the sense of achievement. Did you struggle at any point during the event? Miles 18 – 21 were really tough! It feels as if you’re heading away from the finishing line. My legs and feet were aching. My last 2 miles were my fastest of the entire run though, so I left a bit in the tank! What time did you finish? Where you happy with the result? My personal target was 4.3. However, I finished 4.31. If I hadn’t drunk so much water I would have beaten my target… but when nature calls. How much did you raise in total? Did it meet your personal goal? In total, I raised close to £6.5k which is amazing! I ran with my brother and a friend collectively raising £14k for MS-UK. What’s your plans for future racing events? This is only the beginning. I’ve registered for the Brighton Marathon for next year and then who knows? Maybe New York! Mo Farah, watch your back.Duncan would like to thank everyone who has sponsored and supported him during this time. More

Networks Centre’s Managing Director, Duncan Lindsay, is running the London Marathon on Sunday 26th April 2015 Running for the charity MS-UK, formerly MSRC, Duncan has already raised an incredible £3000 from his Virgin Money fundraising page.  MS-UK is dedicated to supporting anyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis and this is a cause very close to Duncan’s heart as he explains, “My mother suffered with the disease, and after a long battle, she passed away in 1998. There is no cure and it truly is a terrible disease, but what we can do is to help sufferers to live a fuller, more comfortable and better life.” MS-UK offer support and information to sufferers and their families, via Advisors, their website, their magazine and much more. It is a very worthy cause, to support those with a disease that currently has no cure. With just over a week to go, we interviewed Duncan on how his training is going: How are you feeling about the race on Sunday April 26th? I’m nervous in case I can’t finish it. People keep mentioning ‘the wall’. What made you sign up for the challenge? I needed to get fit. So last year I did a tough mudder, then a half marathon and the obvious next stage was a marathon. I’m running with 2 others, my brother and a friend and between us we will raise over £10,000. What has been the hardest part of training for you? Finding the time. Running 5 times a week is very time consuming! What are you looking forward to after the race? Not training! Any message for those who have sponsored you? Massive thanks! More
