We did it!!!
This was undauntedly the best thing we have ever done!
On the 6th of November we were lucky enough to be 2 of 79 UK runners to run the New York City Marathon representing Macmillan Cancer Support!
We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored us, Kelso Races, R.P. Adams, David Johnson and Border Sports & Leisure Trust, everyone who logged on to Asics Support your runner and sent us motivation messages that we got at mile 22 of the marathon especially Rachel, Louise and the BBA Boys and to Macmillan Cancer Support for supporting us and for being such fantastic hosts while we were in New York!
The marathon was a tremendous experience, the weather was fantastic, 2.5 million people turned out to cheer on the runners, they screamed every inch of the 26.2 miles for the twins in their kilts, this has brought the current campaign to an end and we are extremely excited to now be focusing on the BBA 3 Peaks Challenge!

A special mention has to go to Big Brian Gibson who battled and overcame injury during the marathon and fought his heart out to reach the finnish line, and also to Kev and Paddy! Our fellor Scotmen! Who were fantastic company and and an honour to run with in New york! Well done guys, a fantastic achievement!!!
IF YOU EVER DO A MARATHON, DO LONDON OR NEW YORK ………………………. AWESOME!!!!
