Virgin London Marathon 2018


This year's Virgin London Marathon was run on Sunday 22nd April 2018 and we were once again blessed with some amazing people who ran to raise funds for us. Team HEN not only ran the Marathon for us but also worked hard in their fundraising endeavours leading up to the big day, from bake sales to raffles to curry nights.


We once again enjoyed the fabulous 'Pasta Party' to fuel up the night before the race, and Claire and the team were there at the 6.5mile point Cheering Station (just past the Cutty Sark) to cheer on each and every one of our fabulous runners. 


Our runners trained so hard and battled through the miles (not to mention nursing some eye-boggling blisters!). This year's Marathon raised a bumper amount for Headway East Northants, and we are thrilled to be able to use this to continue and develop our services, and to enrich and empower the lives of our wonderful clients. 


Team HEN 2018 - from the bottom of our hearts, a huge THANK YOU!

London Marathon Information Evening, 11th February


We thoroughly enjoyed hosting our annual London Marathon Information Evening on Monday 11th February, and were proud to welcome a record number of runners!


The informal evening, held at our Irthlingborough centre, offered the chance for runners to take a look around our centre, meet fellow participants, and of course it was great opportunity for us to meet these amazing people in person! 


Guest speaker this year was Andrew Walker, himself an experienced London Marathon runner, and a member of Team HEN 2019. Andrew shared his knowledge and experiences, offering hints/tips about build-up to race day, nutrition, lasting the distance, and of course, recovery.


Huge thanks to all who attended!
