The Dino Dash Half-Marathon

| |

Yesterday, two thirteen year old boys from Marlow, Ethan Schrecker and Noah Evans took on the incredible challenge of running a half marathon in inflatable dinosaur costumes (reminder, they are 13!!) .

The boys, both at Borlase School, wanted to do something to help young children affected by the war in Ukraine, so decided to fundraise for The Ukraine Charity.

They completed the challenge, covering 21.11 km lapping around Higginson Park in 3h 23, which included a few stops for photos and costume repairs. Their running time was an impressive 2h 40, and their family and supporters all joined in for a final lap.

At time of writing they have raised just over £5,000! (Donations are of course still possible and most welcome: )

Well done boys – what an incredible effort, in terms of physical endurance and fundraising!
