Last minute challenge for Callum
Callum Macaskill is taking on the challenge of the London Landmark Half-Marathon this August.
With just four weeks to train after one of the original runners sadly had to pull out due to injury, Callum is ready to face the feat.
The 23-year-old who has never done a professional race before, is going all in with a mighty 13.1 miles on 1 August in the capital.
Callum, from the Isle of Sheppey, decided to run for Strode Park Foundation after learning about the charity earlier this year through friends who work for the services, he said: “I’ve seen the work they do through their social media presence and really appreciate the work they do for the local community and would like to support them in any way I can.”
The course will take runners past some of the most iconic sights in London – The London Eye, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral to name just a few.
Callum is aiming to run the half-marathon in under 2 and half hours but is most looking forward to ticking the event off his bucket list. Callum has also noted that he is looking forward to finishing the run on the day and the atmosphere from all the other runners and supporters.
